Visitors enjoy the Headwaters Forest ReserveHeadwaters Forest Reserve

Totalling 7,4000 acres in central Humboldt County, the Headwaters Forest Reserve and surrounding land were acquired from private owners to protect and preserve important ecological and wildlife values.  Stands of old-growth redwoods provide habitat for the threatened marbled murrelet, and stream systems provide critical habitat for the threatened coho salmon.  The Headwaters Forest Reserve was acquired in 1999 and is co-managed with the state of California. 

Forest Reserves are a component of National Conservation Lands .
