More North Coast Forests are saved

Mendocino County is becoming one big preserve

426 Acres of Ancient Redwoods Saved at Noyo River

More than 400 acres of old-growth redwood forest on the northern coast of California are now protected. Over the past two years, the Center for Biological Diversity has been challenging logging plans that would have destroyed some of California's last remaining old forest. The area most recently in danger, known as the Noyo River Canyon in Mendocino County, has just been bought by the preservation organization Save the Redwoods League for $7.5 million-- meaning the Center won't have to stay in court to protect these amazing trees.
