Forever Forest: The Campaign for the Redwoods

Throughout the seemingly endless waves of crises and loss that all of us have experienced over the last year-and-a-half, our redwoods have stood as symbols of resilience and triumph. And it is through these coast redwoods and giant sequoia that we have a responsibility and an opportunity to break the cycle. In protecting and healing the forest, we can create a better future for ourselves and those who come after us. We are part of the forest, and vice versa. We feel it every time we walk into a redwood grove. The connection is profound and undeniable. And future generations deserve to experience that connection as well. They will perpetuate our love for the forests and carry our hopes for a brighter tomorrow. 

Forever Forest: The Campaign for the Redwoods will safeguard the future of the redwoods.

When you support the Forever Forest Campaign, you’ll be investing in what matters most: the forests’ resilience, our leadership, our future. We need you with us, shoulder to shoulder, so we can return the world’s most iconic forests to the scale and grandeur they possessed before any of us were born. And when we succeed in doing so, we’ll leave the world better than we found it. Join us.

The Forever Forest Campaign will:

  • Accelerate the pace and scale of redwood forest conservation
  • Protect the remaining old-growth coast redwood and giant sequoia forests, and the young forests that surround them
  • Safeguard entire redwood forest landscapes forever
  • Restore young forests to become the old-growth forests of the future
  • Enhance the health and ecological condition of working forests
  • Lead transformative research in redwood forest ecology, forest regeneration, and to understand the impacts of climate change
  • Establish the global standard for forest restoration and stewardship
  • Reimagine our redwood parks to inspire future generations with the beauty and power of nature
