Saddle Mountain National Wildlife Refuge
Saddle Mountain National Wildlife Refuge lies within Washington's arid half. The shrub-steppe community it represents is one of only two large blocks of this habitat remaining in the state. The addition of water to the landscape from the Columbia River and irrigation returns has created an oasis of life within this high desert.
Getting There . . .
The refuge is on Washington State Highway 24, southwest from Othello or northeast from Yakima.
The Monument is within a half day drive of three major metropolises (Seattle, Spokane, and Portland) and situated in the "backyard" of the Tri-Cities (Richland, Kennewick, Pasco), Washington, with a population of more than 150,000.
Saddle Mountain National Wildlife Refuge has no public access, although other areas within the Hanford Reach National Monument offer over 68,000 acres for public use.
