Query: G.N.I.S.

Also known as Desert Game Ranch Headquarters, Desert Game Range Headquarters, Federal Fish and Wildlife Headquarters, and National Fish and Wildlife Service Headquarters.

The primary access point to the Desert National Wildlife Refuge is via the Corn Creek Field Station, which can be reached off of Highway 95, about 23 miles outside of Las Vegas.

The area around the Corn Creek Field Station includes a small pasture, tress, and several spring-fed ponds which attract a wide variety of migrating birds not commonly observed in the surrounding arid environment. The ponds provide habitat for the endangered Pahrump poolfish, transplanted here when the native habitat was destroyed.

At the Corn Creek Field Station there is a small, unstaffed, visitors alcove providing maps and general information about local flora and fauna.
