Description: The Kings River Experimental Watersheds (KREW) study was designed to (1) characterize the variability in watershed attributes considered important to understanding processes and health of headwater streams and forest watersheds and (2) evaluate forest restoration treatments. The KREW is a paired watershed experiment located in the headwaters of the Kings River Basin which started collecting data in 2002. This article summarizes the new information gained and published about Sierra headwater streams during the first nine years of the KREW study.
