We have reached our $50 million fundraising goal for the Heart of the Redwoods Campaign six months ahead of schedule! We are well on our way to saving 20,000 acres of the last redwood forests in the Santa Cruz Mountain region. Thank you for your dedication to protecting land right here in our backyard.


In the last three years, we’ve protected ten properties and nearly 10,000 acres of redwood habitat – from Triple Buck Ranch in Gilroy to Butano Crest near Pescadero. We look forward to updating you as more coastal redwoods are saved forever through the campaign.

Rare, Iconic and at Risk

Once located throughout the northern hemisphere, redwoods now exist in only three places on the planet—including right here in our own Santa Cruz Mountains. Our local redwood lands face devastating threats from increasing population and development pressures, and your gift can help save these incredible resources for now and generations to come.
