$250,000 MATCH until September 15th
Double your impact to permanently protect 928-acres of forest at Camp Jones Gulch!
Camp Jones Gulch has sparked a passion for the outdoors for thousands of young people. We talked with campers and the Y of San Francisco’s outdoor education leaders about how protecting Camp Jones Gulch protects critical, diverse habitats, and outdoor education and opportunities with exponential impact for the environmental movement.
In the second part of a new series by Julia Busiek about the impacts of climate on redwoods, we explore emerging research into tree rings and tree morphology and what it may mean for redwoods—and us—in an increasingly volatile climate.
Help Sempervirens Fund raise and match $250,000 of $14 million by September 15 to protect more than 1,000 acres of critical redwood forests including Camp Jones Gulch and the Gateway to the Big Basin.
Removing a Dam, Restoring a Watershed
In September 2021, a defunct, century-old dam was removed from Mill Creek, in the San Vicente watershed, inland from Davenport, CA. This moment capped a decade of restoration efforts in the watershed at the southern end of San Vicente Redwoods, to bring back Coho salmon and improve redwood forest resiliency. Restoring the watershed has also helped the Amah Mutsun tribal band re-establish their relationship to the land and to their history. Their partnership and research deepens our understanding of what stewardship means, for forests, for water, and for everyone. We invite you to hear from the many voices of the Mill Creek dam story in the video and read more about the dam removal here.
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.
