Rising from the heart of the Tularosa Basin is one of the world's great natural wonders - the glistening white sands of New Mexico. Great wave-like dunes of gypsum sand have engulfed 275 square miles of desert, creating the world's largest gypsum dunefield. White Sands National Monument preserves a major portion of this unique dunefield, along with the plants and animals that live here.







People
Over 10,000 years ago the first people came to White Sands National Monument in search of food, water, and shelter. In more recent times, Spanish explorers and miners came to the basin in pursuit of salt, gypsum, and other resources. Ranchers also took advantage of the expansive grasslands in the basin until the bombing of Pearl Harbor during World War II, which caused the U.S. Military to see the value of using the basin for scientific research and technological development.

Places
Each generation of visitors to the Tularosa Basin and White Sands National Monument have left their mark. Today monument visitors can experience some of the most iconic historic places associated with the basin痴 rich history. These places include the monument痴 historic district, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, as well as the historic Lucero Ranch on the western shoreline of Lake Lucero. Visitors interested in learning more about the Tularosa Basin痴 military history can also visit the White Sands Missile Range Museum and Trinity Site, the place where the first atomic bomb was tested in 1945.


Stories
Stories passed down from one generation to the next capture the monument痴 rich history and the many accounts of people who have worked here. These stories include the legend of La Pavura Blanca and firsthand accounts of what ranching life was like on the range in the early 1900s. Park rangers also tell their stories about being employees for the National Park Service and what it is like to work at White Sands National Monument.

Scenery that is never the same twice, colorful sunsets, and the brilliant night sky is an inspiration to many different artists worldwide. Did you know that White Sands National Monument has been the backdrop for many feature films, music videos and commercials? The bright white sands, blue skies, and picturesque mountains provide the perfect setting for commercial filming, photography, and various other art forms.






Like a mirage, dazzling white sand dunes shimmer in the tucked-way Tularosa Basin in southern New Mexico. They shift and settle over the Chihuahuan Desert, covering 275 square miles葉he largest gypsum dunefield in the world. White Sands National Monument preserves more than half of this oasis, its shallow water supply, and the plants and animals living here.
 
Animals
White Sands National Monument has unusually harsh environmental conditions, even for the desert. But that hasn稚 stopped animal species from adapting, surviving, and even thriving here. If you look closely, you can see their tracks in the sand to remind yourself of their presence. And while it may be hard to imagine, there are over 800 species of animals that call white sands their home.




 

Geology
One of the most outstanding features of White Sands National Monument is its unique geology. Without it, the white sands of New Mexico would not be here!


Natural Features & Ecosystems
To the untrained eye, White Sands National Monument can appear as a stark and desolate place, but in reality the monument is composed of complex, interconnected ecosystems. Even the soil is teeming with life. Tiny organisms called cyanobacterium layer themselves into a woven mat that forms the top surface of the soil in the areas between dunes. Step lightly and keep your eyes open! You never know what you might see.




Paleontology
Thousands of years ago, giant animals roamed the shores of an ancient lake that covered what is now White Sands National Monument. Columbian mammoths, giant sloths, and dire wolves stepped in the muddy banks of Lake Otero, leaving behind their footprints. Today evidence of the path they walked is preserved in the sediments of Alkali flat. Prints made of gypsum crystals, dolomite and sand are visible at the surface, and some tracks go on for two miles!


Plants
Plants play a critical role in the ecosystems of White Sands National Monument, stabilizing the leading edges of the dunes and providing both food and shelter for wildlife. But it isn't easy eking out a living here in this harsh landscape!


Environmental Factors
It痴 hard to imagine the Tularosa Basin without white sands. The sand covers approximately 275 square miles, but this is the result of a perfectly balanced ecosystem. We need just the right amount of rain, sun, groundwater, and wind. So, what happens if any part of this system is disrupted? Salt cedars can drink up to 200 gallons of water a day and will outcompete the native species. Additionally, if temperatures continue to increase and speed the rate of evaporation, the prevailing northeasterly winds that shape the dunes today could blow them all away.
