Coming Soon — Camping by the Grand Canyon of the Eel River

Have you ever seen the “Grand Canyon of the Eel River”?

Few have, but that might change soon thanks to a major new conservation deal engineered by the Wildlands Conservancy. The former “Lone Pine Ranch,” owned by San Francisco financial mogul Dean Witter, is now the Eel River Canyon Reserve, one of three reserves managed by the Wildlands Conservancy along the Eel River.

Listen to this week’s show to learn about TWC’s plans for conservation on the property and goals for listening to and meeting the needs of descendants of the Wailaki Tribe and other Indigenous people, when you can go camp along the Eel River, and how the lands will be incorporated into the Great Redwood Trail (and the risk that a coal train poses to this special spot).
