Join RFFI in Confronting
The Redwood Forest Foundation, Inc. (RFFI) believes we as a community have choices! In the 1980’s in the throes of the “Timber Wars” a violent confrontation raged between industrial and environmental interests. The stakes were high. People died. And the Redwood Forest Foundation emerged as a sane, uniting voice in the midst of violent disagreement. Together we carved out a new approach to providing community control over the use and distribution of our region’s natural forest resources. Today we are confronted by this broiling global climate conflict-essentially another dispute over the use of the planet’s resources. RFFI once again finds ourselves uniquely positioned to provide an inclusive, thoughtful, market-based response to a crisis greater than the civilized world has ever faced. RFFI is a small example of enlightened ways in which civilizations undergo transformations.
Join RFFI in moving beyond an old, poorly adapted approach to designing and building an enduring society together. It seems that mankind revolves around carbon! For more than 200 years civilization has derived wealth from prehistoric carbon. We invite you to work with RFFI to transcend the conflicts and pitfalls that loom before us. Move with us to a world that treasures and builds on our strengths, moves beyond conflict to forge a hopeful, productive future. Because RFFI pioneered an innovative market-based strategy for acquiring, utilizing, monetizing and conserving forest resources, we approach this seemingly insurmountable climate crisis with confidence. We believe the same approach that succeeded regionally can pave the way globally.
