Rainbow Owl Preserve
Rainbow Owl Preserve is a wildlife sanctuary in the Las Vegas Area dedicated to protecting local desert species since 2019. It is home to a variety of owls, falcons, foxes, rabbits, and coyotes, all living in harmony in their natural habitat. The preserve also serves as an educational center for the community to learn more about desert wildlife and ecology.
Its goal is to create a haven for endangered species threatened by human intervention in the area. The preserve provides these animals with a safe and secure home and focuses on environmental stewardship, conservation, and education.
The sanctuary is managed by professional biologists who monitor the health of each species within it and its food sources. Special care has been taken to make sure that no invasive species are allowed to roam the preserve.
What Can You See During Your Visit?
You can expect to see different native desert wildlife, including Great Horned Owls, Red-shouldered Hawks, Gambel's Quail, and Desert Cottontails. These birds and animals are the backbones of the preserve, providing food for other species. Additionally, you may also be able to spot some smaller critters like lizards, snakes, and insects.
The preserve also boasts an array of plants important for sustaining these animals, from cacti and creosote bush to agave plants.
Workshops and Events
In addition to learning more about local animal life, you can also participate in onsite workshops and events, which focus on topics like ecological conservation and sustainable living. Rainbow Owl Preserve is committed to educating its visitors on preserving these species for future generations.
Can You Have a Picnic at the Site?
Visitors are welcome to have picnics in certain areas of the preserve. Remember that all food waste and litter should be disposed of properly to ensure no harm to wildlife or the environment.
They have shaded spots where you can set up your picnic to enjoy your food while looking out at the wildlife living in the preserve. All visitors must remain onsite paths and respect the rules posted throughout the site to ensure they don't disrupt any animals while exploring this amazing sanctuary.
When Is the Best Time to Visit?
The best time to visit the Rainbow Owl Preserve is during the spring and fall when temperatures are more moderate. It's because the desert temperatures can be extreme during the summer and winter months. Springtime visitors also have a chance to see new hatchlings come up from their nests. During the fall, visitors may catch some migratory birds that pass through on their way south for winter.
