San Bernardino Wildlife Refuge  
San Bernardino The San Bernardino National Wildlife Refuge is located on the
U.S.- Mexican border in Cochise County, Arizona, 17 miles
east of Douglas.

Situated at 3,720 to 3,920 feet elevation in the bottom of a
wide valley, the Refuge encompasses a portion of the
headquarters of the Yaqui River, which drains primarily
western Chihuahua and eastern Sonora, Mexico. The area
included in the San Bernardino NWR has a colorful and varied
history mostly due to its water resources.
During the 1700s, Jesuit priests were in the area for missionary purposes. The 1822 San Bernardino Land Grant
(which included the present-day Refuge), resulted in large-scale cattle grazing for 10 years, until the ranchers
were driven out by the Apaches.

Cattle ranching returned and farming began when John Slaughter purchased the land in 1887 and both
practices continued until 1979. between 1914 and 1919, cavalry encampments were present to protect
settlers during raids by Pancho Villa. These all left their mark on the landscape of the San Bernardino area.

entertaining, kid-friendly ways. Tombstone has a talent for making the past come alive, whether through live
performances or museums.
