Standing under one of California's National Redwoods amazed by the beauty of nature.
Save the Redwoods League is buying nearly 400 acres of redwood forest above the Russian River near Guerneville. The purchase includes a mile of river frontage, as well as the treasured 2000-year-old Clar Tree, Sonoma County’s tallest tree. Part of the forest may be opened for recreational use including cycling, hiking and boat-in camping. Two-hundred-and-twenty-four-acres of the land was targeted for logging under a controversial logging plan. The sale is still not final, though, as Save the Redwoods League has to raise $6.5-million for the purchase by September 30th. However, organization leaders tell the Press Democrat that they’re confident they can make that happen.
