Hopper Mountain National Wildlife Refuge tours

    Hopper Mountain National Wildlife Refuge is home to the California condor, the condor recovery program and is the gateway to condor country.

    Though the refuge is currently closed to the public and has been since its establishment in 1974 due to the sensitive nature of California condor recovery activities, field trips may be arranged to see these magnificent birds and their habitat. However, it is not guaranteed that we will see condors.   

    Please check back for information on future tours. If you would like to check staff availability, please email:
