Appraisal for San Vicente Redwoods Now Available for Public Review
POST's partners in the Living Landscape Initiative have applied for funding from the state Wildlife Conservation Board (WCB) for a conservation easement that will permanently protect San Vicente (formerly CEMEX) Redwoods in Davenport. The WCB has posted an appraisal of the property on its Web site and invites the public to read it and provide comments in advance of its Aug. 28 meeting. To view the "CEMEX Santa Cruz Mountains Forest" appraisal review, click here.

As part of this proposed funding, Save the Redwoods League plans to hold the conservation easement on the property to make sure this magnificent forest survives and thrives. Read details of the easement here.
