“California redwoods are something to behold. Sheer awe. It’s the most healing experience you can find. It just makes you tingle.” — Ed Gilbert, Redwood Legacy Circle member

“Redwoods make people feel centered and connected to the planet. The length of time they’ve been standing — they are a testament to the past.” — Rose Marie Cleese, Redwood Legacy Circle member

Trilliums are in bloom in the redwoods! While the flowers are seasonal, the trillium plant itself can live up to 25 years. 📸 by HRIA volunteer Heather McClary 🌿

Someone once said of moonstone that it’s like a light in the darkness, which we all need sometimes. It made me think of the light that Galadriel gives to Frodo, to be a light in dark places when all other lights go out. The light of stars, of hope and enduring spirit. Moonstone really does seem like it could be a vessel full of starlight, a conduit between earth and sky.

Buffalo Soldiers were African American U.S. Army soldiers, and they were also among the first National Park rangers. This photo was taken in 1899 in @yosemitenps (📍Me-Wuk land). Approximately 500 Buffalo Soldiers served in Yosemite and Sequoia National Park, and they were responsible for evicting poachers, extinguishing fires, and building some of the parks’ first trails and roads. We salute them today and every day. Learn more about the Buffalo Soldiers from our great partners @nationalparkservice (link in our bio) #VeteransDay 📷 courtesy of NPS

“I grew up in Humboldt amid the serenity of the redwoods, but my husband, a Vietnam veteran, didn’t. When we first met, he had such a debilitating case of post-traumatic stress disorder that he couldn’t step into a forest without being overcome with fear and anxiety. He carried this burden for many years.

Then, with his hesitant agreement, I took him into the redwoods, and we spent the night under the canopy. He felt the awe, beauty, and peace these forests provide. And for the first time since the war, his experience of the forest was not one of fear, but of healing and gratitude.” —Christa Lyons #ForeverForest #VeteransDay

We want and need more diverse representation in redwoods research! So we are offering research grants up to $5,000 for undergraduate and graduate students of color interested in research in coast redwood and giant sequoia forests. Through this program we hope to provide introductory opportunities for members of underrepresented communities to explore ideas in the redwood research space or potentially enhance the work of those who are already working in this space. 

Topic areas can include any focus area in the environmental/ecological sciences or the social sciences, as long as the proposal has some connection to coast redwood or giant sequoia forests. 

Head over to the link in our bio for more info and to apply. And please spread the word! Proposals are due December 1, 2020.

Seasonal transitions are subtle in California, and it takes a while for fall to catch up to us. But lately, I’ve been feeling the changes. Nights are getting colder and daylight is starting to dim. Mornings are finally getting some fog. It’s a welcome change. We joke that we only have two seasons: wildfire season and mudslide season. I never used to like the cold or the rain until I moved to the woods. Here, it’s my favorite time of year. The mist, the piney aroma of redwood and fir, the music of rain falling to the earth, the stillness - it’s absolutely magical.

I crafted these rings with autumn in mind, but not the golden hues typically associated with the season. I’m tired of the heat. Warm, fiery colors are the farthest thing from my mind right now. Instead, I chose blues and greens, crystal clear tourmaline and earthy turquoise, to evoke cooling temperatures and the coming of rain, which will nurture and revitalize the forest. Moss, ferns, mushrooms, fog, banana slugs and mud - that’s what I’m dreaming of.

This photo was taken last week. However, the smoke has cleared, the campgrounds are open, and the sun is out - it's a great time to see the redwoods! 🌿

The current wildfires have burned approximately 72,000 acres of coast redwood forest. Roughly 9,000 acres of this has been in old-growth forest. Visit the link in our bio to access an interactive map to track fire activity near the redwoods. 

Fortunately, coast redwoods, particularly old-growth redwoods, have proven to be highly resistant to fire, and we are cautiously optimistic about the fate of the trees. Nonetheless, the fires have caused a great amount of hardship for communities in the path of these fires and the first responders working to keep people safe.

At Big Basin Redwoods State Park, wildfire destroyed the park headquarters, museum, and other facilities. Save the Redwoods League has joined with @sempervirensfund to create the #BigBasinRecoveryFund to support the immediate needs at the park while laying the groundwork for the long-term restoration of this treasure of the California State Parks system. 

Thank you, fam, for your continued support!
