Why The Rainbow Ridge Conservation Effort Is So Important

An Ancient Un-entered Forest with Complex Habitat Structure Critical to Biodiversity Already at Risk.

This “last of the last” unentered low elevation coastal Douglas-Fir forest is threatened by logging. Ranibow Ridge is part of a grassland/hardwood/fir forestland mosaic immediately adjacent to Humboldt Redwoods State Park and Rockefeller Forest. Cutting down a primeval forest that sequesters more carbon than nearly any other forest on earth will accelerate Climate Change and endanger more species and ecotones. - Michael Evenson

It’s now or never to protect what will remain for future generations.
