Headwaters Forest Ecological Reserve Updated:06/2019

Located in the mountainous north coast region, the approximately 7,500 acre Headwaters Forest Ecological Reserve has unique ecological values, including a highly intact and functioning old-growth redwood and Douglas fir forest, with a diverse understory and undisturbed headwater stream habitat. Bird life includes such species of concern as the northern spotted owl and marbeled murrelet, as well as more widespread birds such as chickadees, thrushes, and woodpeckers. Mammals such as northern flying squirrels, and big brown bats may also be spotted on occasion. The property was designated as an ecological reserve by the Fish and Game Commission in 2003, and is administered by the Bureau of Land Management.
