Background Info: SCBS (Society for the Conservation of Bighorn Sheep) is California’s oldest non-profit for the benefit of our iconic Desert Bighorn Sheep. We were founded in 1964 and have done hundreds of projects over the years to benefit the species.
The Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center (MCAGCC) at Twentynine Palms provides critical habitat for California’s Desert Bighorn Sheep. The base’s mountains are also important because they link isolated herds in the Sheephole range to the Ord ranges. Human development and other factors have negatively affected the Bighorns’ historically available water sources. These water development projects essentially replace what is no longer available, allowing sheep to again utilize their historic range. The base is also a critical link for sheep to pass their genetics between established herds in other ranges that have been isolated for decades.

This “Acacia” Wildlife Drinker installation will be virtually identical to the “Creosote” installation we completed last January 2019. These projects are a lot of fun and great learning experiences. We need more volunteers, hope you can help.
