George R. Bones Wildlife Sanctuary (commonly known as Desert Pines Sanctuary) is a small, 99-acre reserve in the far northwest of Los Angeles County. This beautiful sanctuary is located on the edge of the Mojave Desert, immediately north of the LIebre Mountains, and several miles west of the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve. Its distinctive gray pines, Joshua Trees, and diverse flora make this a beautiful and untouched natural wonder!
