Since 2000, the Northcoast Regional Land Trust has preserved over 6,000 acres. The Nature Conservancy is working towards a goal of protecting 25,000 acres in the area. Together, the two groups are striving to connect Six Rivers National Forest with the coast in a program called the Six Rivers to the Sea Initiative.
Some of the bird species that will benefit from this partnership include the Varied Thrush, Pacific Slope Flycatcher, Hermit Warbler, and Cassin’s Vireo.
