In honor of International Day of Forests, check out our new infographic showing how much of the redwood forest is left to protect. Please help us spread the word by sharing this infographic!

Did you know that redwoods have been around for millions of years, since dinosaurs and giant sloths roamed the earth? This age-old species is truly an ambassador from the past, and walking through a redwood forest feels like traveling back in time. Although the extensive logging of old-growth redwoods has diminished thanks to conservation efforts over the years, only 29% of the redwood range is protected, and these forests still need our support.

We all know that redwood forests are part of a larger ecosystem, the components of which can find themselves closely intertwined and interconnected. This system can often be referred to as a watershed, where all the land-borne water downward, starting at the tops of the hills and making its way to the ocean. Everything in a watershed is connected, from the redwood forests to the San Francisco Bay — and knowing your place within the watershed can be a powerful tool in protecting these natural areas.


Redwoods Education Reaches Across Language Barriers

As I prepared to teach my first Redwoods and Climate Change lesson in the classroom, I was admittedly nervous. This class was composed entirely of English language learners. As the students shuffled into the classroom, took their seats and began reading the board, it was clear they were excited about the week’s lesson.
