SONOMA COUNTY (CBS 5) ― The exclusive and private Bohemian Club
is involved in a very public battle over logging at its secret Sonoma County
enclave. The high-powered club is seeking a special logging permit from
the state that would allow logging without strict environmental review.
For 100 years, the club has been holding annual secret gatherings at the
Bohemian Grove, the largest unprotected redwood forest in Sonoma County.
Environmentalists say the club is trying to get around state law in its
efforts to cut down trees.
