    Equipment Note

At the time this recording was made Carman Valley had not been restored using the "plug-and-pond" technique. The stream bordering the north side of the first large meadow was channelized, the meadow itself was dry and sagebrush was pervasive. This contrasts greatly with its state in 2006-2009 following restoration where the meadow is quite wet, willows have grown to 4 meters (or more) and the sagebrush has largely died off.
