Jackson State Forest

Jackson Demonstration State Forest is 48,000 acres of public redwood forest land in Mendocino County managed by CALFIRE.

An Appeal to Governor Gavin Newsom

Jackson Demonstration State Forest is 48,000 acres of public redwood forest land in Mendocino County managed by CALFIRE. It has been logged many times but beautiful groves of second growth redwood remain. In a time of drought, wildfire and climate change, we need to preserve and protect our forest, as well as the sacred ancestral places it contains... Tell CALFIRE to Stop the Logging!
