Land Cleanup Protects Endangered Condors

on

Cleanup of a remote property that Save the Redwoods League purchased has protected endangered California condors, thanks to our members. A helicopter recently removed 24 loads of refuse, each weighing up to 4,000 pounds, from the property acquired in 2010 for addition to Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. We had to remove building debris remaining from a 2008 forest fire because the land is habitat for young condors, which may mistakenly eat the refuse. Learn more about this project.

Montgomery Woods Trailhead Upgrades Done

on

A reserve harboring some of the world’s tallest trees is easier to find and enjoy, thanks to our members. In November 2010, Save the Redwoods League and California State Parks finished the first $340,000 phase of improvements at Montgomery Woods State Natural Reserve (pictured), including new signage, improved parking facilities, new accessible restrooms and picnic tables under the giant trees. The work resulted from an extensive environmental design and review process to make the reserve more accessible while reducing impacts to the trees, creek and the forest landscape.

Trails Improved at Portola Redwoods State Park

on

Trails in Portola Redwoods State Park were cleared and widened this summer, thanks to our members and a grant from Save the Redwoods League. The $30,000 grant enabled six high school student volunteers and two leaders to clear fallen trees (pictured), widen a trail for people with disabilities, remove poison oak, rebuild a fence and install a retaining wall. The grant supported the crew from the Student Conservation Association, which fosters career development in land conservation and resource management. Learn more about the 2012 research grant projects.
