The Wildlife Area is open as of 8/25/2015. It was temporary closed due to the Rocky and Jerusalem fires in July and August 2015.
The Cache Creek Wildlife Area is approximately 2,300 acres, of which the majority is fairly steep. Typical interior coast range chaparral species and oak-gray pine stands are found on the property. Associated with chamise stands are interior live oak, scrub oak, deer brush, toyon, birchleaf mahogany, yerba santa, gray pine, and others. A regular winter visitor to the area is the bald eagle which can be seen roosting or soaring from mid October through mid August.
The area has two units: North Fork Cache Creek and Harley Gulch. The two units are cooperatively managed by The Bureau of Land Management, Yolo County Parks, and CDFW. Both units provide access to the BLM Cache Creek Natural Area.
