Lamar Haines is a 160-acre Wildlife Area, purchased by Arizona Game & Fish Department in 1948 to provide water and habitat to wildlife on Agassiz Peak. 

Its south-facing aspect and high elevation make this mixed connifer site diverse in both plant and animal species. Old growth mixed conifer forest, aspen, wet meadows, and perennial springs provide habitat for a wide array of species, some of which are rare in the Flagstaff area. 

What You'll See

While deer, elk, and woodpeckers are common, Lamar Haines is also visited by Mexican spotted owls and northern goshawks. These unique traits also make Lamar Haines an excellent location for nature photographers and birdwatchers.
