Cadiz Dunes Wilderness
At almost 20,000 acres, the Cadiz Dunes Wilderness is a small protected area just northeast of the much larger Sheephole Valley Wilderness and Joshua Tree National Park. This is a small dune area created from the remnants of the ancient Cadiz Lake sediment. It is surrounded by Creosote Bush scrub community. Very rare plants can be found here due to the unique topogrophy such as Borrego Milk Vetch (Astragalus Lentiginosus var. Borreganus) which is listed as a rare and endangered species in California by the California Native Plant Society.
