Dry Meadow, the southern-most meadow in the Sierra Hydrology Monitoring Project, is in the headwaters of Bull Run Creek, tributary to the North Fork Kern River. The Western Divide Ranger District (WDRD), Sequoia National Forest (SQF) has categorized Dry Meadow as one of the most severely degraded meadows on the Forest. Drainage area above the stream monitoring station is approximately 2.7 square miles and receives 36.3” mean annual precipitation and is located at an elevation of approximately 6,500 ft. Surveying, resource assessment and conceptual design work have been completed (Wilcox, 2015a) for this site and funds for project implementation are currently being sought. The 2017 field season was the first year for collecting pre-restoration data. Plumas Corporation has been working collaboratively with Trout Unlimited and the Sequoia National Forest during the design and monitoring phase of restoration.
