Central Pacific coastal forests

WWF Abstract

A mosaic of habitats ranging from grassy balds to Douglas fir forests characterize the Central Pacific Coastal Forests ecoregion. Few forests can match the size of the trees and grandeur of this ecoregion’s old growth forests. The region also provides excellent habitat for migrating shorebirds, elk, and black-tailed deer, as well as many rare and endangered species such as spotted owls, hoary elfin butterflies, and California wolverines.
