Prairie Creek Scenic Corridor

on

We made significant steps forward in our 90-year history of protecting lands in the Prairie Creek Scenic Corridor, a patchwork of private property surrounded by parks. The League transferred two properties to Redwood National Park. The 5.9-acre Berry Glen Trail Connection secures crucial wildlife habitat and important trail connections to the park’s two largest ancient redwood groves. The other property, a 2.5-acre parcel, attracts elk herds and the tourists who love to watch them. Learn more.

San Vicente Redwoods

on

The 8,500-acre San Vicente Redwoods is the largest privately held tract in Santa Cruz County and a critical component of the Santa Cruz Mountains biome. With owners Peninsula Open Space Trust and Sempervirens Fund, we are working to conserve this magnificent forest forever. We led the planning for the first forest restoration project, including strategic thinning of dense young stands. Restoration projects including thinning and prescribed fires will accelerate old-growth characteristics in the forest, benefitting a number of imperiled wildlife species. Learn more about San Vicente Redwoods.

Mailliard Ranch

Mailliard Ranch

on

Mailliard Ranch is the largest remaining redwood property still in family hands in the entire coast redwood range. League donors nearly closed the gap for the first phase of the project to protect the ranch’s west and middle portions (totalling 11,000 acres), thanks to a match from Justin Faggioli and Sandra Donnell, League Board Chair and Councilor respectively. The conservation easement that the League is working to acquire across this inspiring 15,000-acre ranch is the ideal tool for protecting this redwood forest at a transformative scale. Read about the milestones.

Redwoods Rising

on

Together with our conservation partners, we are taking action to put the redwood homeland back on the path to vibrance and vitality. We call this collaboration Redwoods Rising, and we are focusing our efforts in and around Redwood National and State Parks. We will acquire land near established parks, connect preserves, heal damaged forests, and expand opportunities for visitors to the redwoods. We have the opportunity to create the redwood forest of the future, a forest of giants rising from the coastal mists of the historic range of Sequoia sempervirens.

Twin Trees Forest

on

Located on the Wild and Scenic South Fork of the Eel River, Richardson Grove State Park is the gateway to the North Coast redwoods. To buffer this jewel of a park from potential threats on a neighboring property called Twin Trees, Save the Redwoods League purchased a conservation easement from land owner Lost Coast Forestlands. The easement agreement protects more than 255 acres of redwood forestland and river habitat. It also allows Lost Coast to continue to own and manage the property while forever prohibiting other land uses such as unsustainable logging, subdivision and development.

Stewarts Point Stewardship Project

Our magnificent 870-acre Stewarts Point property is now permanently protected from subdivision and extensive logging and will welcome the public to a breathtaking coastal trail. We transferred an easement to Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District to conserve 700 acres of old- and second-growth redwood forestland, coastal grasslands and a 1.7-mile stretch of the Gualala River. We transferred another easement to the County of Sonoma for the development of a new section of the California Coastal Trail by the end of 2019. Read the full story and see two videos.

This extraordinary tree is under Save the Redwoods’ protection in California’s Stanislaus National Forest because The Nature Conservancy conveyed it and the surrounding buffering land to us in 1987. Before then, rancher JW Martin Sr. protected the tree until donating it and the surrounding three acres in 1978 to The Nature Conservancy.
