100 Parks for 100 Years on October 13

To celebrate its 100th birthday during October, Save the Redwoods League invites everyone to #Stand4Redwoods and visit one of the 100+ redwood parks across California — for free! That’s 100 parks for 100 years. This expanded “birthday edition” of our Second Saturdays program will take place in October only. The October free entrance day is Saturday, October 13th, but you must first download your pass starting at 8 a.m. on September 26th.

We are partnering with 25 national, state, regional, county, and local agencies to make this happen as one exciting part of our big Celebration Week.

Why? Because you only turn 100 once!

Get Your Pass

The passes cover day-use admission and parking fees to those parks where there are usually entrance fees. Passes for October 13 are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
