Pepperwood Redwoods

on

In Humboldt Redwoods State Park near the town of Pepperwood is a swath of ancient redwoods so dense that it seems impenetrable. Abundant fog nurtures the lush ferns and sorrel that cover the ground. The Eel River runs turquoise nearby. A visit to the magical redwoods now protected in this park inspired our founders to establish Save the Redwoods League in 1918. The League has been protecting this park’s forest piece by piece since 1921 in more than 300 transactions, safeguarding an area that today is the size of four Manhattan islands. Last month, we purchased another piece near this incredible ancient grove for later donation to the park.

Mill Creek Restoration

The good news is that the redwood forest in Jed Smith has been protected since 1929. The bad news is that unless we take care of the land and waterways around this park, Stout Grove and other parts of the park will suffer. The Mill Creek property just south of the park should protect the rivers and streams that nurture Stout Grove and keep it healthy.
