Reimagining the Future of a Historic Family Forest

on

For Andersonia West in northern Mendocino County, the human story, of course, starts with the Sinkyone people. They have lived in this area for countless generations, and their descendants continue to protect, care for, and maintain their cultural connections with surrounding traditional lands and waters.

The idea to permanently protect the western tract of Andersonia started in 1980.
