Meadows Map

Click on the plus (+) key—or use the mousewheel—to zoom in for a closer look at the various meadows in the Sierra Nevada (totaling over 17,000). Click on the meadow for more information, including the elevation, area, ownership, and a link to the full record.

Note: This mapping interface is still being developed. We plan on including other "useful" map layers which can be shown alongside these meadows, so please contact us if you have any suggestions.
