New Spicer Meadow

Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

New Spicer Meadow is a high-altitude wetland located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California. It is situated in the Stanislaus National Forest and is known for its abundant wildflowers, lush greenery, and crystal-clear streams. In terms of its hydrology, the meadow is fed by the melting snowpack from nearby mountains, which then flows into Spicer Reservoir. The meadow also acts as an important water storage area and provides water to local communities and irrigation for agricultural purposes. It is home to a diverse range of wildlife, including amphibians, birds, and mammals. Recreational activities such as hiking, camping, and fishing are popular in the area. The meadow has a rich history dating back to the Native American tribes who lived in the area and later served as a grazing ground for cattle.
