Cowboy Spring Wilderness Study Area

Bureau of Land Management, New Mexico.

Cowboy Spring WSA is located in the southwestern part of New Mexico approximately 50 miles south of Lordsburg. The WSA consists of rugged canyons and rough hill country and is covered by juniper, mixed mountain shrubs, and grasses. This area is located at a convergent point of Chihuahuan Desert, Rocky Mountain, and Sierra Madre ecosystems. The WSA boasts 130 species of birds, 60 species of mammals, and 40 species of reptiles. Though the WSA has outstanding opportunities for hiking, hunting and wildlife viewing, public access across adjoining lands does not currently exist in order to fully realize those values. The BLM is prepared to respond when opportunities to secure public access become available.
