Reserva Natural El Carmen
Reserva Natural El Carmen, is a privately owned and operated Nature Preserve south of Big Bend National Park. It consists of 400,000 acres, a mixture of high grasslands, rugged canyons and lofty peaks of up to 9,000 feet in elevation. This amazing location is home to black bear, elk, pronghorn, desert bighorn sheep, mule and white-tailed deer. Recently, a small herd of genetically pure bison have been transplanted to round out the most complete natural ecosystem of the Chihuahuan Desert. LEARN MORE ABOUT THE PROJECT
