Bitter Creek National Wildlife Refuge
South of Maricopa, California

The Bitter Creek Wildlife Refuge was established to protect a foraging area historically used by California condors. It bridges between the condors' last wild breeding area in Los Padres National Forest to the south and Carrizo Plain National Monument to the north. It is mostly dry grassland dotted with junipers and some chaparral.
