Description: In the desert Southwest, springs are an important ecological feature and serve as a focal point for both biological and human interactions on the landscape. As a result, attention has been placed on the stewardship and protection of these important resources. Management has traditionally focused on the more accessible and heavily used eastern canyons within the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area (SMNRA). This emphasis is reflected in the management guidance in the Toiyabe National Forest Forest Plan and the SMNRA General Management Plan (Toiyabe Forest Plan Amendment #4). As a result of implementing the SMNRA Landscape Assessment (ENTRIX 2008) and the Inventory and Monitoring Strategy (USDA Forest Service 2008), attention has been shifted to the larger landscape. Management programs have begun to address conservation needs outside the "developed canyons."

Keywords: spring stewardship, spring restoration, groundwater dependent ecosystems, watershed management, spring rehabilitation, spring maintenance
