Mendocino County Ca

August 11, 2002 | JOHN McKINNEY
California may have a mighty long coast and millions of acres of wilderness, but it has only one wilderness coast: the Lost Coast in Mendocino County. The Lost Coast is so rough that it thwarted even the state's road engineers, forcing them to route the Redwood Highway (U.S. 101) more than 20 miles inland. Towering shoreline cliffs rise abruptly like volcanoes. Black sand beaches are strewn with driftwood and small stones.

The center of the nation's anti-biotechnology movement these days is in Northern California, where Mendocino County voters will decide March 2 whether to ban genetically modified organisms. Measure H would prohibit genetically modified plants and animals from being raised or kept in the county, although processed food made with genetically modified ingredients would be allowed on store shelves. Success could galvanize similar movements from Vermont to Hawaii.
