Current Restoration Projects

The health of our land and forests is connected. In the same way that pollution upstream will flow down and effect the water of a town hundreds of miles away, what happens in one forest can have a direct effect on the health and survival of another.

San Vicente Redwoods

San Vicente Redwoods is the keystone property in the Santa Cruz Mountains, partly because of its 90 ancient redwoods, but mostly because of its sheer size of 8,500 acres.

Prairie Creek Scenic Corridor

We made significant steps forward in our 90-year history of protecting lands in the Prairie Creek Scenic Corridor, a patchwork of private property surrounded by parks. The League transferred two properties to Redwood National Park. The 5.9-acre Berry Glen Trail Connection secures crucial wildlife habitat and important trail connections to the park’s two largest ancient redwood groves. The other property, a 2.5-acre parcel, attracts elk herds and the tourists who love to watch them.

Restoring the Forest to Benefit Wildlife, People, Climate

Protecting the redwood forest isn’t just about preservation — it’s also about restoration. Save the Redwoods League helps restore habitat for wildlife that depends on ancient forests. With your gifts, we also speed development of tomorrow’s beautiful old-growth groves. These groves will help mitigate climate-changing greenhouse gases, and they’ll provide clean water for people and animals.

See the video and story, and learn how you can help more.
