Cleanup of a remote property that Save the Redwoods League purchased has protected endangered California condors, thanks to our members. A helicopter recently removed 24 loads of refuse, each weighing up to 4,000 pounds, from the property acquired in 2010 for addition to Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. We had to remove building debris remaining from a 2008 forest fire because the land is habitat for young condors, which may mistakenly eat the refuse. Learn more about this project.

You, our members, can be proud of all Save the Redwoods League has achieved in fiscal year 2010 thanks to your generosity: The League protected almost 6,000 acres of redwood forest and supporting landscapes and accelerated restoration of logged forests, planting more than 15,000 trees and removing 3 miles of logging roads. We also awarded nine research grants to advance understanding of redwoods and climate change and secure the species’ health for the future. Learn more of the year’s achievements.
