North Coast Earth First!

North Coast Earth First! banner Earth First! is an ideology, based in biocentrism, and traditionally uses non-violent civil disobedience and direct action to bring forth positive social change. North Coast Earth First!, in Humboldt County, California, continues to build on that tradition, with a long-established code of non-violence and no property destruction. We seek to build bridges within the community, as far as it may reach, and to save some of the last Ancient Old Growth Redwood and Douglas Fir forests left on Earth.
