            Jackson State Redwood Forest

In 1997, Dharma Cloud Foundation began exploring alternative futures for a 50,000 acre redwood forest, Jackson Demonstration State Forest, located in Mendocino County, California.

The initial explorations led to the formation in 2000 of the Campaign to Restore Jackson State Redwood Forest. The Campaign initiated a series of lawsuits that halted logging and caused the state to create a new Environmental Impact Report and write a new management plan. The new plan set up a broad-based Jackson Forest Advisory Group and charged it with developing a long-term management plan for the forest. The group developed consensus recommendations that it delivered to the Board of Forestry and Cal Fire in January, 2011.  Go to the website for the Campaign to Restore Jackson State Redwood Forest for more information.

In addition to archives of actions and developments in the Campaign, the website has general information (including maps, and trails), research papers, historical documents, photos and Mendocino County information
