The approximately 1,700-acre Crocker Meadows Wildlife Area provides ideal conditions for deer foraging and fawning. The area is mostly montane chaparral habitat dominated by sagebrush and bitterbrush. Pockets of black oak and yellow pine can be found at the lower elevations. At the upper elevations, wet meadow habitat is found in Crocker Meadow. Two seasonal streams drain the property. Common wildlife species include mule deer, mountain quail, jackrabbit, coyote, gray fox, raccoon, and a variety of hawks.
