Threatened Species
Northern Spotted Owl
State forests provide habitat for hundreds of species of fish and wildlife in addition to meeting our scenic and economic benefits.
On Oregon state forests, a 'take-avoidance' policy is in place to meet the requirements of the federal Endangered Species Act to reduce the potential for harming threatened or endangered species.  
The streams, rivers and lakes provide habitats for a variety of fish species. The federal government has listed some populations of coho salmon, Chinook salmon, chum salmon, steelhead trout and the Oregon chub as threatened or endangered species. 
Listing status for fish and wildlife can be found here on the ODF&W website
