Nature Preserve Aerial View
This aerial view of the Nature Preserve illustrates the access points as well as the number of trees that will be removed. The removal of these trees and this deforestation will completely upset the natural balance of the area. Removing these trees and allowing for motorized vehicle access will impact the vegetation as well as the ability for the animal life in the region to survive as they have for hundreds of years dating back to the times of the Nisenan Maidu Indians.
