What's at Stake?
A century ago, from ridges to canyons, the redwoods of the Gateway property were decimated—clear cut to build nearby cities and towns. When the trees were gone, new ones rose to take their place, establishing what today is a healthy second-generation coast redwood forest. For decades, permanently protecting the Gateway property has been a priority. If we do not seize this opportunity now, we cannot secure the forest’s future, especially from development or logging, along the scenic entranceway to Big Basin Redwoods State Park.
