Many thanks to everyone who participated in our first-ever May Membership Madness campaign! We’re thrilled to welcome all our new members, and thankful for all our existing members who spread the redwood love by gifting a membership to a friend.

Our campaign once again showed that you don’t have to live in California to love the redwoods. We received donations from 19 states—as close as Oregon and as far away as Arkansas, as well as Europe!

I love to hear what inspires people to protect these magnificent trees. Maybe it was a childhood camping trip, a drive down the Redwood Highway, or simply the notion that some things are so special they deserve to be saved forever. For me, it was a magical January trip to Muir Woods in my early twenties, just after I had moved to California from New England, complete with steelhead migrating up Redwood Creek!

Do you have a memory or an experience that inspires you to save the redwoods? If so, leave a comment here, or post on our Facebook page.

Thanks again to all our new May members, and welcome!
