Wildlife found in High Elevation Forest and Mountain Habitats




Text by Dave Menke, USFWS.
Forests consisting primarily of Douglas fir, western red cedar and true firs dominate areas above 5,500 feet in the Upper Klamath and Tule Lake Basins. These habitats are found mostly in the Cascade and Siskiyou mountains. Popular travel destinations with these habitats include Crater Lake National Park, Medicine Lake, Lake of the Woods and the Pacific Crest Trail. Wildlife species found in mountain meadows, streams and lakes as well as those seen above timberline are included in this habitat grouping.
