Description: This guidebook describes Woodcock Bog Research Natural Area (RNA), a 114-ha (281-ac) area located within the Klamath-Siskiyou ecoregion in southwestern Oregon. The RNA includes a hanging fen and stream segment on ultramafic rock and derived soils. Numerous plant species occur within the fens that are endemic to the Klamath-Siskiyou Mountains of southwestern Oregon and northwestern California. Cobra lily (Darlingtonia californica), and sedges (Carex spp.) characterize the area. The site also supports very dry, open serpentine forest stands of Jeffrey pine (Pinus jeffreyi), along with denser stands of Port-Orfordcedar (Chamaecyparis lawsoniana), Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), and other conifers typical of the region.
Keywords: Research natural area, area of critical environmental concern, hanging fen, serpentine fen, Klamath-Siskiyou ecoregion, Darlingtonia fen, cobra lily, Port-Orford-cedar, Chamaecyparis lawsoniana, Jeffrey pine, Pinus jeffreyi, serpentine endemism
