Shady Dell: Creating a Trail in Paradise

on

Your generous gifts enabled Save the Redwoods League to purchase Shady Dell and plan its restoration. Now we’re working to open its wonders to you. But first Shady Dell needs work. Logging in the 1800s, 1950s and 1980s damaged this landscape. Before logging, this land embraced giant redwoods, clear streams and diverse, native plants and animals, including now-imperiled salmon, northern spotted owls and birds called marbled murrelets. These animals depend on ancient forest habitat. Our vision is to help restore the forest features they need. Learn more about the restoration efforts at Shady Dell.
