Comments
General Comments: 
-10 minute walk from Hwy 88. -Lower end of meadow is on a lower terrace but it's a transition zone to a ravine. -There are sage terraces, but we don't think it is historic floodplain. -See map for actual meadow delineation: the bottom of the meadow transitions into a steep ravine.
