Preserve Open Space Close to Home
A sprawling redwood forest preserved
In its biggest project ever, POST teamed up with other leading land conservation organizations to preserve the largest expanse of unprotected forest in the Santa Cruz Mountains — more than 8,500 acres of redwoods and rich wildlife habitat above the former CEMEX cement plant in Davenport, Cal.
The property — which was being considered for development — is home to old-growth redwoods, Coho salmon and an abundance of plant and animal species, including some found nowhere else in the world.
The collaboration to save CEMEX Redwoods is the first major project of the Living Landscapes Initiative to protect critical lands in and around Silicon Valley.
