Redwood Restoration Campaign Kicks Off

Save the Redoods League

Redwood National and State Parks are famous for their towering redwoods, but they are also in desperate need of a helping hand. Large swaths of the parks were scarred by decades of logging, which left behind eroding roads, impaired streams, and spindly, young trees that hold neither the magic of an ancient forest nor its ecological strengths.  Redwoods Rising is a new restoration collaborative between Save the Redwoods League, the National Park Service, and California State Parks to fast-track restoration activities to deal with this legacy of industrial timber management.

Lathrop Lennord, Forester with California State Parks, and Richard Campbell, Forestry Program Manager at Save the Redwoods League, join host Tom Wheeler to explain how logging - the thing that degraded the forest in the first place - can be what helps to improve the forest today.
