About Save the Redwoods League


Since 1918, Save the Redwoods League has protected and restored redwood forests and connected people with their peace and beauty so these wonders of the natural world flourish.

Buffering Calaveras’ Giant Sequoias


We thinned and restored dense forest to reduce fire risk and prepared the Beaver Creek property for transfer to Calaveras Big Trees State Park. The League also installed fencing to mark the new park boundary. This property will buffer Calaveras’ amazing giant sequoias.

With your support, we are restoring the former logging site, Mill Creek. This forest has a lot of problems such as crumbling roads, which could cause catastrophic landslides that harm threatened salmon. Photo by Evan Johnson

Mill Creek Restoration Protects Amazing Ancients


It can be a long, winding even stressful drive to Stout Grove in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park at the northernmost tip of California. But it only takes moments to be completely at peace here. Step into this cathedral-like stand, and you’ll gaze upon immense redwood columns rising to a canopy that filters the sunlight. A thick carpet of needles and ferns traps every sound, creating remarkable silence. This magical space will suffer unless we take care of the land and waterways around this park. Learn how you can help.
