My all-time favorite redwood grove is along the north Bull Creek Flats Trail in Humboldt Redwoods State Park. From San Francisco, drive north on highway 101 for about four hours, and then take the scenic route: the iconic Avenue of the Giants, where towering trees line the road through the park.
The redwood forests are among the Diaz family’s favorite places. Jami, her husband Xavier, and their sons, Nolan, 8, and Hollis, 4, love to take trips from their San Jose home to decompress among the giant trees. So when they learned on Facebook about the League’s 2018 Free Second Saturdays in redwood parks, they jumped at the chance to explore different forests.
Save the Redwoods League infused San Francisco’s Civic Center Plaza with the redwood forests’ magnificence at the April 21 Earth Day festival themed “Stand for the Redwoods, Stand for The Future.” Read on to discover the forests’ secrets in highlights of our interactive talks with the League’s staff.
