REDWOODS

Redwoods Magazine Spring 2022

LOST COAST EDITION

Welcome to the Lost Coast Edition of Redwoods.

With 100 miles of almost roadless beauty in Mendocino and Humboldt counties, the Lost Coast is the longest stretch of undeveloped coastline left in California. The rugged landscape rewards visitors with breathtaking views of redwood forests, bluffs, and the deep, blue Pacific. Save the Redwoods completed two projects to protect this region, restoring Indigenous guardianship at the forest called Tc’ih-Léh-Dûñ and purchasing Lost Coast Redwoods, the largest privately owned California coastline in the coast redwood range. Supporters across the globe inspired us with their generosity and enthusiasm for these historic projects.

Join our thousands of members today for only $25, and you’ll get future editions of our Redwoods magazine.
