The 930-acre Alkali Sink Ecological Reserve includes alkali sink scrub and annual grassland habitats. Migratory birds, particularly sandhill cranes, make seasonal use of the ground for foraging and resting. Wintering waterfowl utilize the flooded vernal pools, and some limited waterfowl nesting may take place on the annual grasslands. Raptors forage for rodents, rabbits, hares, small birds, and reptiles.
