Protecting local redwood forests helps preserve the quality of drinking water for local communities including Santa Cruz and Davenport. Along creeks and streams in these forests, the trees serve as a pollution buffer and prevent erosion by stabilizing stream banks. Redwoods also help replenish our waterways, especially in dry summer months when fog caught in redwood foliage drips to the ground, feeding creeks below. Threatened fish species such as Coho salmon and steelhead trout also benefit from redwoods, which help maintain water quality for fish habitat.
