What is the Headwaters Forest Reserve?

The final free presentation in the 2012 Winter Lectures Series is on Tuesday April 3 at 7 p.m. in the Healy Senior Center, 456 Briceland Rd., Redway.


Dr. Douglas Bevington, author of “The Rebirth of Environmentalism,” will lead a panel discussion on the movement and events that led to the establishment of the Headwaters Forest Reserve, the 7,472-acre reserve near Eureka.  A group of activists who were part of that movement will participate.


The Headwaters Forest was transferred into public ownership in 1999 and is managed by the BLM and the California Department of Fish and Game to protect and preserve the ecological and wildlife values in the area, particularly the stands of old-growth redwood that provide habitat for the threatened marbled murrelet, northern spotted owl, native salmon stocks, and other old growth forest dependent species.


The Winter Lecture Series is arranged by the BLM King Range National Conservation Area and the Lost Coast Interpretive Association. For more information, please call 707-986-5400 or email ca338@blm.gov
