Mill Creek Restoration Protects Amazing Ancients

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

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.

Purchase Preserves Humboldt Redwoods SP Scenery

on

In Humboldt Redwoods State Park near the town of Pepperwood is a swath of ancient redwoods so dense that it seems impenetrable (pictured). Abundant fog nurtures the lush ferns and sorrel that cover the ground. The Eel River runs turquoise nearby. Save the Redwoods League has been protecting this park’s forest piece by piece since 1921, 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. Learn more about this purchase.
