Video: An important message from Sam Hodder

It has been four weeks since the League closed its San Francisco and Northern California offices. But our important work serving the public hasn’t stopped.

    In 2016, I took a group of harpists (Bay Area Youth Harp Ensemble Save the Redwoods tour, summer 2016) up into the Avenue of the Giants area and we made some videos to help raise awareness of these beautiful trees. If you’d like to check them out and like them on your website, please feel:
    We also have some beautiful pictures of the harpists playing in the redwoods if you’d like any of those, let me know. They’re quite special.
    Thank-you for all you do!

    SAM ~Thank you so much for the heartfelt depth of your message ! I spent my childhood swaying in the wind at the top of Pennsylvania Pines and now I love the Redwoods majesty and silent wisdom.

    There is nothing like walking in dappled sunlight through old growth redwoods……the hush, the muted bird songs, the touches of bright colors of flowering plants here and there. Towering trees, profusion of different shades of greens and browns, sometimes the tinkling of water, but mostly not. Walking in redwoods is always a profound experience. It gets one close to the essence of meaning and the uplift of gratitude. I live on the East Coast and can only dream of redwoods or return to them in my memories. Thank you to the League for the vital work you have always done and continue to do.

    Many years ago as a kids my family and I would drive up to the redwoods in Northern California. Very beautiful up there. We need to save the Redwoods and not cut them down. I drove through there with my middle brother the end of July 1978. Still very beautiful. We did go camping for a few days. Very scenic drive. Very pretty country up there.
