Project Description

Applying the Sierra Meadows Strategy, we completed an assessment and prioritization of meadow restoration activities in the Sequoia National Forest (SQF) to benefit Kern River rainbow trout and Little Kern golden trout populations. In the next phase of the project, we will work with SQF and other partners to continue restoration plans, permitting, and research in up to five meadows. We’ll be documenting restoration benefits and developing potential payment for an ecosystem services program.
