About the amargosa river
The Amargosa River is a 185-mile-long river in the Mojave Desert region of California and Nevada. Historically, the river supported indigenous communities for thousands of years, and later, prospectors traveling to and from Death Valley. Hydrologically, the river flows year-round and is fed by springs, creeks, and snowmelt. It has several small reservoirs along its length, including Beatty Pond and Big Dune Reservoir. However, there are no large dams on the river. The river is not widely used for agriculture due to its small size and unpredictable flow. Recreational activities include hiking and birdwatching along the river and its riparian habitat. The Amargosa River is also a critical habitat for several endangered species, such as the Amargosa vole and the Ash Meadows speckled dace.
