Jawbone/Butterbredt Recreation Management Area

Description:

With less than 5 inches of precipitation annually, including some snowfall, the dryness of the climate causes rapid evaporation at this site. Some water seeps underground to feed area springs that provide water, which is essential to wildlife. Butterbredt Spring supports desert wildlife while also providing water and habitat for waterfowl migrating in the spring and fall. The land at the spring is privately owned, and vehicle travel and hunting in the area is restricted. The Audubon Society, in cooperation with the private landowner, has established the spring as a wildlife sanctuary.

Directions:

From State Highway 178 east of Bakersfield or west of Inyokern, take the Kelso Valley Road 38 miles south to the site.
