Groups Vow Legal Challenge Against Highway Widening Threatening Ancient Humboldt Redwoods
Wed May 19 2010
Project Would Harm Old-growth Trees, Marbled Murrelet Habitat, and Rural North Coast Towns
GARBERVILLE, Calif.- The Environmental Protection Information Center and the Center for Biological Diversity vowed an all out legal challenge against a highway-widening project that not only threatens the ancient redwoods of Richardson Grove State Park, but could also change the rural character of Humboldt County.

On May 19th, the California Department of Transportation filed official notice that the project was approved, but the agency has not yet made its final Environmental Impact Report for the controversial project available to the public. The highway project is widely opposed by local residents, business owners, conservation and Native American groups, and economists as unnecessary and damaging to the state park, the venerable old-growth grove and its wildlife, tourism, and the coastal communities of Humboldt County.

"Anyone who cares about California's redwoods and the rural charm of Humboldt County should weigh in to stop this disastrous project," said Kerul Dyer, Richardson Grove campaign coordinator for the Environmental Protection Information Center. "The old-growth redwood grove within the state park is supposed to be fully protected and not vulnerable to destructive projects like this one."
