Thanks to your gifts, California State Parks reinstalled a seasonal bridge across the Eel River, restoring visitor access for the first time in three years to 61 stunning redwoods campsites at Standish-Hickey State Recreation Area. The bridge also allows access to the giant Standish tree, miles of forest trails, a sparkling swimming hole and day-use parking. The bridge and campground are open, so go enjoy the magnificent redwoods at Standish-Hickey and know that you made a difference here. Thank you!

You’re Keeping an Ancient Forest Reachable

on

You helped us buy Noyo River Redwoods, a magical ancient forest you can see only by the historic Skunk Train, in 2011. Recently you came to the rescue again. Your gifts helped to repair a collapsed railroad tunnel that shut down the train’s famous Redwood Route last April. The tunnel is now open and full Skunk Train service has resumed. You can make sure we’re ready to protect and provide you access to amazing forests like this one: Please donate today.

Bridge, Tunnel Open, Thanks to You
