Project: Log Meadow Restoration

Description: Healthy meadows provide resiliency to the effects of climate change by improving groundwater storage, enhancing baseflows, reducing peak flood flows, enhancing water quality, increasing resilience to wildfire, and improving critical habitat and aquatic resources. The proposed project will restore and protect 138 acres of mountain meadow at two high-priority sites: Faith Valley in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest and Log Meadow in Sequoia National Park. It will thereby directly address the PSN priority 1 of restoring degraded montane meadows and restoring and protecting upper watershed lands for climate adaptation and resiliency. The expected results of the proposed project are twofold: 1) hydrological and ecosystem processes are restored across 138 acres of mountain meadow, and 2) a case study of innovative, light-handed meadow restoration techniques catalyzes meadow restoration at additional locations, such as access-restricted Wilderness areas.
