Lucin in Box Elder County, Utah — The American Mountains (Southwest)
In 1999, the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources acquired a lease from the Southern Pacific Railroad on Lucin for the benefit of resident and migratory wildlife. Due to the presence of water, Lucin is an “oasis in the desert” and is important for many species of wildlife, particularly songbirds. Songbirds, some on their annual migrations to and from such faraway places as Mexico, South America and Canada, need places to rest, food to eat and water to drink. Here in the middle of the Great Basin Desert,
Please enjoy this oasis. We hope that you will help us protect this area for wildlife and for other people who come to enjoy this area.
Erected by State of Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.
