Coalition to Save Jackson
The People’s Forest

Why Is California Logging Sacred Lands?
Jackson Demonstration State Forest (JDSF) is a 48,652-acre state owned coast
redwood forest located in Mendocino County. CalFire manages the land as an industrial
timberland, routinely cutting large, old redwoods. The Save Jackson State Forest
Coalition works to change the mandate of JDSF from industrial logging to Indigenous
Land Management that will benefit all Californians.
