Visitor Activities


 With the exception of scheduled tours for education or research groups, the refuge is closed to the public for safety and security concerns. 


San Andres National Wildlife Refuge is completely surrounded by the 2.2 million-acre White Sands Missile Range, the largest military installation in the United States.

For a magnificent view of the San Andres Mountain Range, visit the interpretive kiosk at San Augustine Pass on Highway 70 (south side) between Las Cruces and Alamogordo.

Please contact the refuge if you have any questions.
