Thank You To Our Regional and Global Donors, Partner & Supporters!
Thank You from the Redwood Forest Foundation- a small grass-roots organization yielding big results! Together we are bringing about social, environmental and economic change – establishing local control of forest resource management for the benefit of the community. Our innovative financial strategies use private dollars – loans and gifts – to leverage public and private funds to acquire, regenerate and sustainably manage large landscape forests. Our successful climate action has attracted world-wide recognition and led to strong regional and global climate partnerships. The map above depicts our regional and global supporters. Our primary donors and partners, some of whom are listed above, are key to our effectiveness. Your generous gifts make a real difference.
Partnerships In Action
Profile of a Local Business
Since 2000, Jesus Vasquez, owner of Vasquez Reforestation, and his crew – all “locals”-have worked in the Usal Redwood Forest. They coordinate closely with URFC staff Joaquin Quintana and Travis Munoz, planting trees in the winter and clearing brush and thinning forest stands in the summer and fall. Vasquez appreciates the steady work: “We really like you guys!” This partnership is just one of many contributing to the local economy while strengthening the fabric of our community. Read More Here
High School Forestry Challenge Competition Comes to Usal Redwood Forest!
