"The Klamath National Forest covers 1,700,000 acres of Northern California and the lower part of Oregon. The forest gets its name from the Klamath people-- the indigenous tribe of Southern Oregon. It is densely populated with old-growth conifer trees. The national forest covers a fraction of the much larger Klamath-Siskiyou Region, the largest concentration of roadless wilderness on the West Coast. This region, largely unprotected outside of the national forests, is recognized for its great biodiversity and habitat variety. It is one of seven areas in North America considered an Area of Global Botanical Significance by the International Union for Conservation of Nature".-e-scapes 1/2014 
 This is a nice slideshow from e-scapes with smooth jazz in the background.  This would make a good timer during geography related activities. The photos are all of the Klamath Mountain Forests. Central Valley
Video of Picking and acking process.
 Klamath Mountains
1) Slide Show of images
2) Video of a man staying in the Klamath Mountains. He does a good job of showing the environment. It's about 7 minutes long. He shoots off a bow and a gun at nothing. He may have been scaring off any predators from the road but the reasoning is unclear.  Please preview before showing in class.
 A silly song you can use as a model for a class or group activity about the regions of California.
