Marking a critical moment in the 100-year history of Save the Redwoods League and the future of redwood forest conservation, we are releasing two defining documents: our State of Redwoods Conservation Report and Centennial Vision for Redwoods Conservation.

As a California voter, you can make a transformational investment in our redwood forests and parks, and our state’s water resources by voting “yes” on June 5 for Proposition 68, the Clean Water and Safe Parks Act of 2018.

Good news about America’s most important conservation program: Save the Redwoods League and our conservation partners are celebrating recent bipartisan federal legislation that increases spending for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). Thanks to our lawmakers, many critical conservation and recreational access projects will receive funding this year. Urge your member of Congress to reauthorize LWCF before it expires in September.
