South Phillips Recreation Management Area


This large area of rolling prairie with shrub/scrub is a nationally important breeding area for shortgrass bird species, such as mountain plover, burrowing owl, ferruginous hawk, Baird's sparrow, and Sprague's pipit. The area's prairie potholes attract more than 10,000 breeding ducks each year. Wildlife such as deer and antelope frequent the area. In addition, the area contains a concentration of prairie dog towns and is directly adjacent to a reintroduction site for the federally-listed, endangered black-footed ferret.


From Malta, drive south on US Highway 191. Follow any of the major gravel roads east off Highway 191.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
