Save Richardson Grove allies are invited to rally in Sacramento on June 22, 2011 to protect the Grove. Participants from Humboldt and Mendocino counties will be joined by organizers from the San Francisco Bay Area, and from other locales around the state, when they converge at noon right in front of Caltrans’ headquarters in Sacramento, at 12th and N Streets. At the rally, the group plans to deliver postcards of opposition from across the state and country to send the message that the project should be immediately rescinded, at least until a better alternative can be identified.
After four years of holding off the road widening project, the broad coalition of activists, including the Bay Area Coalition for Headwaters, recognized as a long time redwood region defender, is inviting concerned citizens to rally for Richardson Grove to ensure that democracy is respected and the legal cases heard on their merits before the project moves forward. With no procedure available to the public to express substantive concerns for the negative effects the project could have on the local economy and ecological health of the ancient redwood grove, the group will take their message to Sacramento.
