Yes! You can climb or ski a mountain, swim or fish in
lakes and streams, hike through trees and jog up hills.
              Will I see Lions and Tigers and
                       Bears? Oh My!
                You might see a Mountain Lion, a Coyote or maybe a
                Black Bear or Grizzly Bear depending on where you stay
                but you will probably see or hear some type of rodent.
                Mountain lions are hunters and hunt on rodents and fish.
                So are the bears and Coyotes. Rodents are veggie eaters
                and they eat leafs and mushrooms and such. They often
                are heard nibbling on tasty snacks.

                            Is that Poison Ivy?
             Maybe but besides the poisonous plants you will
             probably see a ton of conifers, moss and broad leafs.
             All these plants depend on the climate the animals
             and the plants around them to survive. Moss lives in

             and conifers enjoy the chilly winds

         Say what?
What water does to the Highland
     Temperate Forests?


Water affects the Highland Temperate Forests in many
ways. Water feeds the plants which make up the forest and
feeds the animals. Forest streams run in even the driest
weather, keeping the living things healthy. Water keeps the
soil fertile. And there’s plenty of it during the spring and
winter.
