Writer and photographer Greg King first came to the old-growth redwood forests of Humboldt County in 1987, and soon after took up the fight against the clear-cutting that was quickly destroying the ancient trees. King’s family once owned the King-Starrett Mill in Monte Rio, one of the largest redwood mills in Sonoma County. He was instrumental in founding and preserving the Headwaters Forest, just south of Eureka, Calif., and has dedicated himself to protecting the redwoods and promoting their preservation. This week, King presents “The Ghost Forest,” a lecture on his life’s work and the issue of timber industry practices, on Friday, June 13, at the Jenner Community Center, 10398 Hwy. 1, Jenner. 7pm. $5. 707.865.2771.
