Once again the League is excited to announce the recipients of the 2023 redwood connect grants who will bring almost 2,000 students out to a redwood forest this spring and summer. These 16 organizations span the redwood and giant sequoia range and serve youth from elementary age to young adult.  The grant money will support a variety of experiences in the redwoods including team building, health and wellness, redwood ecology, and stewardship and conservation.
