Did you know that 44 different species of mammals live at White Sands?

Join rangers at 3:00 PM every Saturday and Sunday in the visitor center courtyard for a 20-minute talk about these amazing animals. Rangers will have pelts, skulls, and other props to provide you an up-close look and feel of the elusive wildlife of White Sands. There is no charge for the program, but monument entrance fees apply.
