More than $15 Million Raised Toward Permanent Protection of Lost Coast Redwoods Property

Save the Redwoods League has raised more than $15 million since it announced plans to purchase Lost Coast Redwoods. The 3,181-acre property spans 5 miles of rugged, undeveloped Northern California coastline in Mendocino County, and it has an expansive coast redwood forest of more than 2,250 acres.

“We are inspired by the outpouring of generosity and enthusiasm for protecting Lost Coast Redwoods, a place that will be an iconic part of California’s landscape for generations to come,” said Sam Hodder, president and CEO of Save the Redwoods League. “Raising $15 million from supporters from across the country in a matter of weeks is a record for our organization. But we can’t rest on our laurels just yet. I invite everyone who shares our commitment to a healthy future for the redwoods and the California coast to help us reach this ambitious goal by December 31st.”

Save the Redwoods League secured an agreement to purchase the Lost Coast Redwoods property for $36.9 million, and it is seeking to raise a total of $43.4 million in public and private funding in support of the acquisition, restoration and stewardship of the property. News of this rare opportunity has inspired thousands of individuals across the U.S. and from six different countries, including New Zealand, Ecuador, Canada, Great Britain and Australia to make contributions towards the purchase. Several supporters have made commitments of $1 million or more. Fundraising will continue through and beyond December 31.

The property supports abundant habitat for coho salmon and steelhead trout, culturally and ecologically important species that are protected under the Endangered Species Act. This property is also home to Roosevelt elk, black-tailed deer and mountain lions. Offshore, the recently designated Double Cone Rock State Marine Conservation Area buffers this sensitive coastline and protects sea lions and other marine life along the 5 miles of undeveloped beach. The islands offshore, including Vizcaino Rock, support more than 11,500 nesting sea birds.
