Big River

Mendocino Land Trust, with terrific community support, has protected several coastal lands from logging or development and placed them in the trust of California State Parks.

Led by Mendocino Land Trust, a group of 20 conservation groups, 12 state and federal agencies, 17 private foundations, more than 70 local businesses and 1,400 individual donors from 25 states and Canada raised $25.7 million to purchase the property, thereby preserving it from further commercial logging use and opening it to restoration. It is now a beautiful California State Park that is an essential contributor to our community’s soul and its economic life. Projects to restore fish habitat and old-growth forest conditions are underway. Further, the estuary is part of the recent initiative by the Land Trust and stakeholder partners to extend conservation and restoration to the entire Big River watershed.
