Additional Description: Naturaleza Viva
Una abundante vida silvestre habita las tres zonas del área de conservación: la cañada, cuyo microclima propicia un amplio rango de plantas y animales; el humedal en torno a la presa, hábitat de aves diversas, y el matorral, paisaje típico del semiárido mexicano. Al frente se extiende la reserva norte del Jardín, más de 50 hectáreas dedicadas a la restauración natural. En el horizonte destacan las serranías de La Márgara al este, Los Picachos al sur, y al oeste el perfil de la Sierra de Guanajuato.

Living Nature
An abundant wildlife fills three zones of the conservation area: the canyon, with its micro-climate that hosts diverse plants and animals; the wetland, a wildfowl habitat around the reservoir, and the chaparral, typical semiarid landscape of Mexico. North of the dam and canyon stretches the Reserve, over 100 acres in process of restoration. On the horizon appear the mountain ranges of La Margara to the East, Los Picachos to the South, and far to the West the profile of the Sierra de Guanajuato.
