Free Redwoods Days Events in July

Summertime and the redwoods are calling! For anyone living in Central or Northern California, the chances are good that a marvelous redwood forest lies just a short car drive away. We’ve got a park for you!

Check out these fun events from our park partners on July 14:

The weather this time of year can be ideal for exploring the coast redwood forests in particular. As the hot summer sun raises inland temperatures, heat clashes with incoming cold gusts from the ocean. The contrast creates moisture, which condenses into fog. Like clockwork, this cool blanket rolls in at dusk. Fog not only provides redwood forests with plenty of water, it also lowers the temperature, creating an amenable environment for hikes. Usually, by mid-day, the fog evaporates, giving way to a sunny but mild summer day.

Visit FreeRedwoodsDays.org to plan your visit and to get your parking pass. (Don’t wait! Passes for certain parks go fast!) Also, be sure to sign up for our mailing list to receive notifications when the passes to the next free second Saturday are available for download.
We can’t wait to see you on the trails! Hope you join us on July 14th!

Calling all Redwood Volunteers

As a science-based conservation organization we are always looking at the latest redwood research to help guide our efforts to protect, restore, and connect people to these magnificent forests. Our citizen science projects are one way we engage the general public in our work to get a better picture of what is happening in the redwoods.

Tracking Seasonal Changes in Our Parks

What determines when shrubs bloom? The study of seasonal life cycle events such as this is called phenology, and gathering long-term data on these cycles is the focus of the California Phenology Project (CPP). Collecting data is simple, and anyone can participate. For the past couple of months, I’ve been tracking some plants in Redwood Regional Park as part of the Redwood Phenology Project by Save the Redwoods League and the East Bay Regional Park District.
