The Headwaters forest in Northern California is currently under private ownership by Charles Hurwitz and his Maxxam Corporation. In order to save this old growth forest from being cut down, an effort to purchase them from Maxxam Corp has been initiated. So far 5 million dollars has been pledged by an anonymous Silicon Valley investor. Over all approximately $100-200 million will have to be raised to save the forest.
