Sempervirens Fund

July 20, 2012 by Bay Nature

Sempervirens Fund is California's oldest land trust, originally formed in 1900 as Sempervirens Club. Using donors' tax-deductible dollars, Sempervirens Fund has purchased and saved thousands of acres of redwood forest land in the Santa Cruz Mountains from the threat of logging and development. Newly purchased land is transferred to state and local parks agencies, thereby creating some of the most beautiful public parks in the world.
