CalTrans Sets Sights on Redwood National Park Again

Martin Litton fought and won the battle to save the Coast Redwoods in 1967 when Governor Pat Brown canceled a project to expand Hwy 101 through the Richardson Grove of Coast Redwoods in Northern California. The project appears to be resurfacing. While the project description doesn't say they will be removing trees, the aerial photo maps show widening the highway into the tree line. We hope that Northern California activists can keep an eye on this project to once again protect Coast Redwoods from human development. Once these majestic trees are gone, there is no going back. Protect Redwood National Park! Long live the legacy of Martin Litton.

In Memoriam         

February 13, 1917 - November 30, 2014

For the majority of his 97 years Martin fought to protect this nation’s natural world from the short-sighted greed that would raze its forests, dam its rivers, and destroy its ecosystems. We are so very grateful for his courage and leadership during his amazing life.

We celebrate his life and environmental legacy with honor. Martin's uncompromising nature will not be lost and will remain the focus of Sequoia ForestKeeper® activism.
Martin, may you rest in peace. Our condolences to his wife, Esther and children: John, Donald, Kathleen, and Helen, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
