Free Redwoods Days Events in June

To kick off the summer, which redwood park will you visit? For anyone living in Central or Northern California, the chances are good that a marvelous redwood forest lies just a short car drive away. Consider visiting a redwood-fan favorite, like Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, which offers pristine views of the Pacific. Or visit Calaveras Big Trees State Park, which offers an entirely different experience, with giant sequoia the width monster trucks.

Check out these fun events from our park partners on June 9:

No matter what park you visit, signs of summer abound. Notice newly-formed leaves, in all their bright-green glory, on bay laurel trees. Marvel at the fresh young fiddleheads on western sword ferns, which will eventually unfurl to replace fully-grown fronds. Listen carefully to the ambient buzzing and chirping, a summer symphony of birds and insects. As we marvel at all that redwoods have to offer, we can celebrate our past and say cheers to another hundred years to come. Hope you join us on June 9th!

Visit 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!

The Countdown is On to Save Red Hill


The League has negotiated a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase and protect the pristine 160-acre Red Hill property – one of the last ancient giant sequoia forests still in private ownership. However, we must complete this deal by June 25!
