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.
You, our members, can be proud of all Save the Redwoods League has achieved in fiscal year 2011 thanks to your generosity: Read about how you helped protect towering ancient giants facing imminent harvest along the Noyo River (pictured). Learn how 100 of you planted seedings in memory of a conservation hero. And see how our Education Program inspired children across the nation to write to President Obama.
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.

A thick carpet of needles and ferns traps every sound, creating remarkable silence.
