ACTION ALERT: Save Richardson Grove For Future Generations!

For more than a decade, EPIC and allies have fought the proposed Caltrans project in Richardson Grove. The Grove was designated as a heritage park and protected in the California State Park system, and is one of the state’s oldest and most popular state parks. Richardson Grove sits alongside the wild and scenic Eel River, and is a place that is of incredible value to a multitude of people from around the region, the state, the country, and the world. Richardson Grove is the gateway to Northern California’s redwoods, and it shelters one of the last protected stands of accessible old-growth redwood trees in the world.

Will you speak up today for these iconic trees?

The proposed highway-widening project would cut into and pave over root systems of thousand-year-old trees, potentially causing dieback of the canopy and possible loss of parts of the grove of irreplaceable redwoods. All this would be done just to force oversized trucks up and down the coast. And it’s unnecessary, because other cost-effective and environmentally sound transportation solutions exist.

Under this new administration, we have another chance to stop the project and explore alternatives. We can’t do it without the support and participation of the community. Take action today and let our representatives know that Richardson Grove is not up for experiment!

Tell U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, California Governor Gavin Newsom, Caltrans and your legislators to save the redwoods of Richardson Grove for future generations and the climate.
