WHY WE WALK

Day after day, Mendocino Redwood Company (MRC) continues to poison our watersheds, injecting the chemical Imazapyr into Tan Oak and Madrone trees to intentionally kill them. MRC’s use of “hack and squirt” on over 90,000 acres has killed over 14 million trees in almost 20 years. MRC also sprays hundreds of gallons of glyphosate herbicides on underbrush each year that end up in our water and food. Under the guise of “sustainability” they are destroying the land for profit without regard for living beings and ecosystems. We walk to honor the forest and water that supports us all. We call for an end to the destruction of the Earth.
