This forest was one of the world’s last unprotected giant sequoia properties. Red Hill is a spectacular property on the South Fork of the Tule River that supports more than 100 ancient giant sequoia and a mixed coniferous forest teeming with wildlife.
Protected: A remote redwood forest to buffer the ancient grove of Montgomery Woods. High on an overlook deep in Mendocino County, Atkins Place sits in a strategic location adjacent to the magical Montgomery Woods State Natural Reserve. The League acquired this land in August 2022, safeguarding it from future potential subdivision and development.
Save the Redwoods League today announced that its Forever Forest Campaign raised more than $139 million, surpassing its five-year goal of $120 million. More than 50,000 individuals and organizations from around the world contributed to the campaign toward conservation across the coast redwood and giant sequoia ranges.
In the far reaches of the North Coast of California, young redwoods await their moment to become ancient giants. Save the Redwoods League has been dedicated to protecting land in what is now Redwood National and State Parks since the early 1920s. We’ve protected and transferred to the parks more than 140 properties, encompassing more than 55,000 acres.
And now, we can announce the pending acquisition of the largest unprotected sequoia grove. Alder Creek is located near Camp Nelson off Highway 190, and is surrounded by the Giant Sequoia National Monument. It’s no exaggeration to call Alder Creek a crown jewel of the giant sequoia. In both size and conservation value, it is comparable to the famous Mariposa Grove, Yosemite National Park’s iconic giant sequoia stand.
