Wenima Wildlife Area

The Wenima Wildlife Area is located in east central Arizona, approximately three miles northwest of Springerville and Eagar.

On January 28, 1993, the first parcel of the Wenima Wildlife Area, consisting of 205 acres, was purchased by the Arizona Game and Fish Department through its Heritage Fund. This constituted the first "fee title" Heritage acquisition in the state. Waterfowl Conservation Funds were also utilized in the acquisition.

On February 22, 1995, purchase of the adjacent Slade property added 152 acres to the Wenima Wildlife Area bringing the total size to 357 acres. The land and resource values associated with this acquisition meet the objectives of Arizona's Heritage Fund for Threatened, Endangered and Sensitive species and habitats, as well as provide benefits for other wildlife species and recreational opportunities for the public.

To get there, take U.S. Highway 60 a couple miles west going out of Springerville. At the junction of U.S. Highways 60 and 180/191, go a quarter-mile north on Highway 180/191 and look to turn right onto a graded dirt road going northeast. After 1.5 miles, the graded road drops a short distance into the Little Colorado River canyon corridor.
