This camera focuses on the cycle of seasons at a small ephemeral spring in the Wildcat Hills. The Wildcat Hills are a set of rocky escarpments perched above the North Platte River Valley near Scottsbluff-Gering, Nebraska. The region is atypical for Nebraska in that the ecology resembles the Laramie Mountains 60 miles to the west. Ponderosa pine woodlands dominates the landscape, and bighorn sheep, pronghorn, elk, mule deer, wild turkeys, and mountain lions can be seen in the area and all must have reliable water sources to survive. The Wildcat Hills are a popular hiking, biking, and wildlife viewing destination, uniquely managed by the Game and Parks, Platte River Basin Environments and local ranchers and landowners.
