GRI property is also home to many plants and animals. We are proud to report a healthy population of northern spotted owls. Steelhead trout are abundant and we have the occasional sighting of coho salmon. The swamp harebell and mapleleaf checkerbloom are plants of special concern that are abundant on GRI lands. Red-legged frogs, made famous by Mark Twain as the “Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County” are also present in some of our ponds.
