The Walker Canyon Ecological Reserve is 490 acres of mostly high desert sage-chaparral. Topography within the Reserve includes rough desert mountainous slopes with numerous rocky outcrops strewn throughout. Walker Canyon runs from the west to the southeast within the Reserve and provides seasonal water and riparian habitat along its drainage.
The Reserve was purchased to maintain and enhance wildlife habitat. The US Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) McCain Valley National Cooperative Land and Wildlife Management Area is situated along the Reserves northern border. Because the Walker Canyon Reserve is contiguous with this BLM Management area, the principle management objective is to provide habitat for wildlife and to open additional land for upland and big game hunting.
