About Apache Station Wildlife Area
The Apache Station Wildlife Area, located next to Apache Generating Station near Cochise, is a primary winter roosting location for sandhill cranes. AEPCO established the Wildlife Area in 1997 and operates it under a stewardship agreement with the Arizona Game and Fish Department. We host hundreds of visitors at the Wildlife Area each year.
The Wildlife Area is populated by numerous mammals including javelina, bobcat, and deer. Birds of prey include the Northern harrier, red-tailed hawk, ferruginous hawk, bald eagle, and golden eagle. Wading birds and waterfowl are present year-round, although numbers reach their peak in the winter months. Frequently seen waterfowl include the snow goose, Northern shoveler, mallard, Northern pintail, and American wigeon.
