So. Cal. Wildlife water guzzler installation

Water guzzlers—manmade tanks designed to catch and hold water—can sustain wildlife in arid parts of the country during especially dry years. Volunteers with the Quail & Upland Wildlife Federation have been constructing guzzlers in the desert for more than 15 years, positively impacting local populations of blacktail deer, bears, mountain lions, two species of quail, and other wildlife.

Volunteers will build a big-game drinker with the capacity to hold 500-gallons of vital drinking water on a parcel of private land adjacent to Happy Camp Canyon Regional Park and ten miles south of Los Padres National Forest. Timing is crucial, as runoff from spring rains needs to be captured before the dry season to sustain record increases in wildlife populations.
