The Ancient Redwood Forest and Watershed Restoration Project is coming to Redwood National and State Parks in the first year of a 10-year program to reinvigorate America’s national parks. This $3 million project will foster the recovery of some of this nation’s last remaining ancient redwood forests, protect critical salmon habitat and work to inspire future generations toward being better stewards of the land.

“This is a large step for Redwood National and State Parks in our continuing restoration efforts,” said National Park Superintendent Steve Chaney. “We wouldn’t have been able to move forward in this restoration work without the cooperation of many partners who are supporting this effort. We so much appreciate their commitment. Generations to come will benefit from this work.”
