You're Keeping an Ancient Forest Reachable

You helped us buy Noyo River Redwoods, a magical ancient forest you can see only by the historic Skunk Train, in 2011. Recently you came to the rescue again. Your gifts helped to repair a collapsed railroad tunnel that shut down the train's famous Redwood Route last April. The tunnel is now open and full Skunk Train service has resumed. You can make sure we're ready to protect and provide you access to amazing forests like this one: Please donate today.

Van Damme State Park

HIGHLIGHTS: Van Damme State Park is 3 miles south of the town of Mendocino, where the Little River crosses Highway 1. Some visitors come here for the river and the redwoods, some for the coast and the abalone, and some for the history.
