California’s Majestic
Coast Redwoods

Coast redwoods—Sequoia sempervirens—are the majestic guardians of California's most precious habitats and wildlife. With your support, Sempervirens Fund protects and preserves redwood forests in the Santa Cruz mountains, ensuring a healthy and resilient balance of nature, now and always.

World Wildlife Day Cultivation

Sempervirens Fund works to support and protect all animals in redwood forests. From banana slugs to Townsend big-eared bats. We work with specialists to ensure that these species are taken care of and can thrive for generations.

Fungi of the Forest: Meet the Mushrooms of San Vicente Redwoods

Mycologist and researcher Maya Elson teamed up with photographer Orenda Randuch for a fungi photo essay to help us meet the mushrooms hard at work at San Vicente Redwoods. Learn identification tips to recognize mushrooms above ground, and their critical work underground to help the forest recover from fire, drought, flood, and human impacts in the fight against climate change.

Sempervirens Fund permanently protects 120 acres in Santa Cruz mountains’ Upper Zayante watershed

Late in 2023, Sempervirens Fund permanently protected 120 acres in Santa Cruz mountains’ Upper Zayante watershed. The Isabel Upani conservation easement, donated to Sempervirens Fund by private landowners, guarantees protection of the more than 67 acres of redwood forest.

Our Vision

We believe wild and thriving redwood forests can flourish again from Silicon Valley to the Pacific Ocean. With your help, we can establish a large, interconnected, and protected network of healthy trees and streams, stretching across public and private lands. Learn more about our vision.
