Spring Box Repair & Wildlife Monitoring (Hungry Valley SVRA)

Wildlife Photo A spring box at Hungry Valley SVRA was overgrown with cattails and the cement was beginning to deteriorate. Volunteers and Park staff cleaned out the box and repaired the cement. During a large mammal photo monitoring project, California mule deer, black bear and other wildlife were photographed utilizing the spring box for drinking and bathing.

A spring box is a structure engineered to make optimum use of a natural spring. The spring box functions to protect the spring water from contamination, normally by surface runoff or contact with human and animals, and provides a point of collection and a place for sedimentation.
