Nature Center

The Colorado River Nature Center (CRNC) is approximately 500 acres located along the Colorado River south of Bullhead City, AZ. The CRNC is managed by cooperative agreement between the BLM, the AZ Game and Fish Dept. and Bullhead City. The CRNC provides public access to an undeveloped sandy river beach. It also protects and enhances crucial wetland, riparian and mesquite bosque habitats and preserves significant cultural resources. Future plans call for interpretive trails and exhibits.

Directions: From Highway 95 just south of the south connection with the Bullhead City Bypass, drive west on Richardo Road which becomes the dirt access road to the river beach area. Vehicles are not allowed on the beach and there are no boat launching facilities

Beale Slough

The slough was created during the channelization of the Colorado River. The BLM has worked towards re-establishing riparian vegetation along the slough (back-water) providing habitat for turtles, beavers and other wildlife. The slough provides an opportunity for river recreation as well as wildlife viewing.

Directions: From I-40 south of Needles, California, take the Five-mile road exit and drive east towards the Colorado River. Follow the dirt road under the Railroad bridge, turn right and drive one mile south, look the interpretive sign. Vehicles are not allowed on the beach or levee and there are no boat launching facilities.
