Description: This guidebook describes Forest Creeks Research Natural Area, a 164-ha (405-ac) area comprising two geographically distinct canyons and associated drainages. The two units have been established as examples of first- to third-order streams originating within a ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) zone. The two riparian areas also represent examples of the mountain alder-redosier dogwood (Alnus incana-Cornus sericea ssp. sericea), and the redosier dogwood-mockorange (Cornus sericea ssp. sericea-Philadelphus lewisii) plant associations.
