Drakesbad Meadow Restoration
In the park's Warner Valley area, an historic fen surrounding the Drakesbad Guest Ranch area has been restored to its original condition. During the early part of the 19th century, the Drakesbad fen was drained to provide better pasturage for domestic livestock. This was accomplished by digging ditches (thousands of linear feet) throughout the wetter portions of the fen to route spring meltwaters into Hot Springs Creek more rapidly. This effectively dewatered (and degraded) an uncommon montane fen ecosystem.
