On the League’s 100th birthday and the dawn of its next century of conservation work, we are embarking on a new Centennial Vision for Redwoods Conservation.
ONE HUNDRED YEARS IS A BRIEF, PASSING MOMENT in the life of a redwood tree. In the life of a nonprofit organization, however, 100 years marks a major milestone. In 2018, Save the Redwoods League celebrates its Centennial and a century of extraordinary accomplishments in protecting and restoring redwood forests and connecting people to their peace and beauty.
AT THE DAWN OF OUR NEXT CENTURY, we seek to increase the scale and impact of our conservation work; our longstanding mission of saving healthy, vibrant redwood forests demands it. At its core, our Centennial Vision is about preserving these globally significant forests—and the transformative redwood moments they inspire—for generations to come. Redwood forests are among our most sacred places: where we go to renew our spirits and immerse ourselves in the giants’ silent beauty, find peace and comfort in their unfathomable resilience, gain perspective and humble respect for their massive longevity, and witness firsthand the irrepressible power of nature.
Save the Redwoods League envisions vibrant redwood forests of the scale and grandeur that once graced the California coast and the Sierra Nevada, protected forever, restored to grow old again, and connected to people through a network of magnificent parks and protected areas that inspire all of us with the beauty and power of nature.
Protect the ancient redwoods and the vibrant forest landscapes that sustain them.
Restore young redwood forests so they become the old-growth forests for future generations.

To walk among these giants is to look upon the original face of nature and experience the incomparable majesty and beauty of the world’s tallest and largest living things. In a world increasingly defined by the deterioration of global natural treasures—receding glaciers, dammed and dying rivers, unprecedented rates of species extinction—Save the Redwoods League has a story of hope and resilience to tell.
Our first chapter, spanning the course of our first 100 years, tells how we stopped the destruction of these superlative forests, saving treasured examples of the wild and ancient groves that once dominated California’s coast and mountains.
Now, during our Centennial, we begin our second chapter, wherein we will safeguard these storied groves and heal the forests that surround and sustain them. Together with our supporters and partners, we will set in motion the reclamation of the ancient redwood range and sow the seeds of new old-growth forests that will sustain and inspire future generations. Moreover, we will renew our human connection to the natural world through the treasured gateways of our dedicated redwood parks. With your help, we can continue writing this story together and take the first essential steps toward creating the ancient forests of tomorrow.
