“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

A haiku: When Ancient Rome fell This redwood live A haiku:

When Ancient Rome fell
This redwood lived on and on
Today it still stands

Here’s a fun creative exercise for you and your kids if you have them. Write a haiku (5-7-5 syllables) about this 1600-year-old giant! We call it the McApin tree and it lives in the Harold Richardson Redwoods Reserve in the remote hills of Sonoma County, on 📍Kashia land. In the next couple of years we plan to open this magical place as the first new redwood park in a generation. #redwoods4ever #myforeverforest

Right now we need stories of hope and resilience m Right now we need stories of hope and resilience more than ever. We’d love to hear and share your memories from the redwood forests. Please tell us a story and tag us. We’ll go first: “Years ago when I was working as a travel journalist, I had the good fortune of touring Redwood National and State Parks for the first time with one of our amazing @redwoodnps rangers Carey Wells. As we strolled through the ancient forest of Prairie Creek Redwoods (📍Yurok land), I was breathless among enormous old-growth coast redwoods, western hemlocks, big-leaf maples, and more. Scientists know that our sense of smell is closely connected to our memory, so that must be why I never forget the moment when Ranger Carey tore open a fresh California bay leaf and handed it to me for a whiff. It was the most invigorating fragrance. In that moment I realized what a sensory wonderland exists in the redwood forest. Beyond the unreal sights and the peaceful sounds of creeks and songbirds, even the forest’s aromas were more intense than anything I’d ever experienced in all the world. In California, we have the great privilege of protecting these special places for one another.” —Dana Poblete, Writer/Storyteller and Editor, Save the Redwoods League // 📷Max Forster

Just Thanks 🙏🌲 We're ecstatic to let you all Just Thanks 🙏🌲 We're ecstatic to let you all know that savetheredwoods successfully acquired Alder Creek, permanently protecting hundreds of ancient giant sequoia trees! More than 98% of the world’s giant sequoia groves are now protected thanks to 8,500+ donors from around the world giving over $15 million in total to the cause!
.
We would like to thank everyone who joined us in donating to this project before the start of the new decade 💚 and because our nonprofit The Just Thanks Organization reached its goal of $25,000 to donate, we get to name one of the trees in the reserve! Let's decide that as a community...

What should the name of our tree in Alder Creek be?

Any and all suggestions welcome 🙌 and more to come on this ongoing preservation project in the future! LFG!! #2020Visions

Don’t be fooled by the smile. This picture was i Don’t be fooled by the smile. This picture was intended for a #marchmeetthemaker intro, but… well, here we are. I’ve hesitated to post anything for a while. I couldn’t put the words together, and am finding it hard to post anything as if it’s business as usual. I wish I could say I’ve been handling this with grace, finding solace in art, but it’s not true. I’ve been shamelessly scrolling through Facebook and reading way more news articles than is healthy, running worst-case scenarios through my head, feeling powerless and anxious and angry. I want to be hopeful, but not blind to the reality of the situation. But I also don’t want to look back at this time with regret. I want to remember patience and compassion, solidarity and hope. I want to remember creating beautiful things and connecting with others. The fresh spring air and puffy clouds, fog rolling over the mountaintops. The quiet. There is so much I can’t control, except for how I choose to use this time. I know that I speak from a place of privilege. The world being forced to stop in its tracks will hit some harder than others. But we’re all in this together, and there’s something kind of special about that. Hang in there, friends, and in all seriousness: stay home. Wherever you are in the world, don’t wait for your local government to order you to shelter in place - do it now. .

How are things for you? What’s it like where you are? Feel free to vent 🙂

The first rain of the season arrived yesterday, an The first rain of the season arrived yesterday, and man was it a blessing. It didn’t start until the afternoon, but the sky was gray and heavy with anticipation all morning. After 9 months of sunshine, the rain really does feel like a miracle. Finally, it’s officially the season, and for that I’m thankful. What are you thankful for?

Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving weekend - aside from wolfing down mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie, I’ll be finishing up new pieces for the Holiday Market in Felton this Saturday and the Crafters Fair at Nubo Brewing on Sunday. If you’re local, come say hi!

Giant Sequoias are so powerful and provide so many Giant Sequoias are so powerful and provide so many attributes to the ecosystem. They support so many communities and populations of species from plants to animals and insects. Not only are they one of the largest living organisms, their bark is composed of fine fibers and their sap contains tannic acid which makes them flame resistant. They are also resistant to fungal rot and beetles and other insects. However, slow burn fires are extremely important to their existence, growth, management, and to the forest overall. These are the kings of our forest. ✨🌲 #savetheredwoods #stand4redwoods ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
