Take areas and maps

A take area is a geographical area outside the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve designated as Mojave Desert tortoise habitat. Any development or habitat disturbance within a take area must be coordinated with the Desert Reserve administration. There are 10 take areas designated within Washington County. The maps of those 10 areas are available here.

To coordinate development, or if you have questions, please contact the Desert Reserve administrator at (435) 256-6311 or the habitat biologist at (435) 256-6310.
