Save The Redwoods League is a non-profit based in Northern California. Their mission is to preserve California’s redwood forests through conservation.

The League has come to an agreement with a logging company to purchase 5-miles of pristine coastline property called the Lost Coast Redwoods. The property is 2,250 acres, and the asking price is $36.9 million. The League must raise the funds by December 31st in order to prevent the property from falling into the hands of another logging company, or a commercial management company.

From Save The Redwoods League:

Encompassing 5 miles of rugged, undeveloped California coast in northern Mendocino County, the 3,181-acre (about 5 square miles) Lost Coast Redwoods property is a landscape of great cultural and ecological significance. This extraordinary place is at a convergence of the traditional territories of the Sinkyone, Cahto, and Coast Yuki peoples. With more than 2,250 acres (about 3.5 square miles) of second-growth redwood forest and large old-growth trees scattered throughout, this property has been managed for commercial timber production for decades. Now this forest will be set on a new path to become an old-growth forest of the future and potentially an iconic coastal redwood destination for all people.

Save the Redwoods League has secured an agreement to purchase the Lost Coast Redwoods property for $36.9 million and must raise the funds by December 31, 2021. If successful, the land will be protected forever from excessive timber harvesting, subdivision, and development. In 2022 the League will continue fundraising to support the remaining acquisition and stewardship expenses, for a total project cost of $43.4 million. The League will work to restore the land’s natural resilience and is committed to exploring opportunities for cultural stewardship and public access, consistent with our goals to protect key species, habitats, and biocultural values.
