You have the Greenhorn Mountains to the West and the Carrizo Plain National Monument to the East. The mountains have a wide range of Biotic Communities which transition from one to another with changes in altitude, and the Carrizo Plain ("California's Serengeti") is one of the richest areas in California for Spring wildflowers, wintering raptors, and other wildlife from Pronghorn Antelope to Sandhill Cranes. Look at the lists on the Monument site to see what is there:
