“It is like being in a cathedral.”
“Ancient spirits of the Native Americans are still living among the redwoods.”
“I always feel healed after a visit to the redwoods.”
These are the kinds of emotions many of us experience in the redwood forest. The restorative feeling evoked by the redwoods is one of the many things motivating us every day. We feel this ourselves and we know that you do, too.
One of the League’s generous donors expressed it this way:
“It was in this search that I found a way to express my grief. It gave me the opportunity to reconnect with my mother in a way that she and I had often done while she was alive . . . through the beauty and healing power of nature.”
– Andrea Speraw, at the dedication of the memorial grove in honor of her mother, Ruth Krag Speraw
Now, two of the League’s Councilors are arranging a “healing walk in the redwoods” for a very special group at one of the San Francisco Bay Area redwood parks. With their permission, we will share photos and stories from that healing walk.
