Summit Lake Sagebrush Spring(s) into Action

Funding Year





Humboldt, Nevada

Project Description

The project will protect and restore two large, degraded springs (Tule and Slide Springs) within the Summit Lake Paiute Tribe Reservation. Spring ecosystems are vulnerable to overgrazing by domestic and wild ungulates, and fencing springs and associated wet meadows can facilitate the necessary protection, rest, and recovery from grazing pressures. An enclosed fence will be installed around each spring to control access by horses and cattle.
