Meadow runs north to south, there are 2 main channels with the primary one running further east. The outlet creek from Burnside Lake runs along the edge of the meadow along the eastern and southern edge. Both of the main "meadow channels" join into that one. Significant amounts of willow in upper meadow. Most of the forb was also in the upper meadow.
