Document Description
The project proposes to amend the 2004 Headwaters Forest Reserve Resource Management Plan to provide a broader suite of forest restoration tools for land managers. This amendment will update the 2004 plan to incorporate the best available forest restoration science. The Headwaters Forest Reserve is co-managed by the BLM and the CDFW. The Reserve is 7,472 acres of public land six miles southeast of Eureka. It is set aside to protect and preserve ecological and wildlife values, particularly the stands of old-growth redwood that provide habitat for the threatened marbled murrelet (a seabird), and stream systems that provide habitat for threatened coho salmon.
