The project continues at King's Spring, where heavy equipment is being used to partially fill the spring pool, returning it to its pre-disturbance size of a small, crescent-shaped spring pool. The spring outflow is currently in a concrete irrigation ditch. A new channel is being excavated to recreate the natural course of the stream. These changes will provide better habitat for endangered Ash Meadows Pupfish and Speckled Dace, three rare plants and other native wildlife. The area will appear to be damaged for the first year or so, but will re- cover as native vegetation grows back.
