We invite you to stand under the world’s tallest and largest living creatures — the most powerful forests in the fight against climate change — and learn why we are working so hard to protect and restore them.
Be amazed and inspired by the beauty and power of these natural treasures.
Free Redwoods Days Events in August
As summer begins to fade, it’s our last call to squeeze in as many outdoor activities as possible before school starts and the weather begins to cool. But how, you might ask, can we thoroughly soak up the last days of summer before returning to our normal, rest-of-the-year lives? Three simple words: Free Redwoods Days!
Go for a swim underneath the redwoods, hike along miles of scenic trails, and gaze upon the unique and wonderful coast redwood and giant sequoia forests.
Check out these fun events from our park partners on August 11:
- Butano State Park: Latino Outdoors Hike at 10:00 a.m. — reservations required
- Hendy Woods: Guided Forest Ecology Walk at 10:30 a.m.
- Jack London State Historic Park: Hike to the Ancient Redwood at 10 a.m.
- Mount Tamalpais State Park: Redwoods hike with park interpreter Rosanna Petralia at 9:30 a.m.
The weather this time of year can be ideal for exploring California’s redwood forests, and if you’re adventurous enough to take a dip in the swimming holes nestled within, check out the following off-the-beaten-path recommendations on our Giant Thoughts Blog.
