Thanks to the support of people like you, Save the Redwoods League recently purchased five miles of breathtaking California coastline and 3,000 acres of redwood forest. The Lost Coast Redwoods is a stunning, iconic landscape that could not be left to chance.  

Now we’re turning our attention toward securing its long-term protection and restoring it to its old-growth splendor. 

That is why we are thrilled to announce a generous $1 million challenge grant from The Goodman Family Foundation, a Supporting Foundation of the Jewish Community Federation & Endowment Fund, matching all new gifts made by March 31 to our Redwood Land Fund and the work to protect Lost Coast Redwoods. Thanks to this match, all donations to the Redwood Land Fund between now and midnight March 31 will be doubled. 

Lost Coast Redwoods was once managed by a timber company, and the startling truth is that there are still over a million acres of coast redwoods that are being harvested as timberland. Purchases like this are a cornerstone of our Forever Forest campaign, and your gift allows us to reverse the story of the redwoods from one of loss to one of renewal.  

Forever Forest: The Campaign for the Redwoods, a comprehensive campaign launched by the League in January 2020, is building support for the organization’s ambitious vision for the next century of redwoods conservation. The League’s goal is to raise $120 million by 2022 to fund the first years of this centennial vision, which includes protecting entire landscapes through large-scale, strategic land acquisitions; restoring young redwood forests to become the old-growth forests of the future; and connecting all people with the beauty and power of the redwoods through transformational park experiences. 

We are so grateful to have you with us as we work to return the world’s most iconic forests to the scale and grandeur they possessed before any of us were born.   

When we succeed in this work together, we will leave the world better than we found it.
