This week, we walked onto our Orick Mill property and were greeted by a large herd of Roosevelt elk. The League purchased this 125-acre property in the heart of the Prairie Creek Corridor a few years ago and are actively reclaiming the old mill site to enhance wildlife habitat and create a gateway to Redwood National and State Parks for park visitors. As the Roosevelt elk wandered over the pavement, they instantly reminded us how exciting it is to restore this site and reclaim their habitat. Just think, before long these magnificent elk will be able to graze in natural meadows again that we will create with your help.
