June 9 — Get Your June 9 Pass
The year is nearly half over, but we still have plenty of chances to celebrate the League’s Centennial. As we approach the summer solstice, with longer daylight hours and warm weather in our future, California’s incredible redwood forests are where you can get your summer started early.
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:
- Mount Tamalpais State Park: Docent-led Hike at 9:30 a.m.
- Patrick’s Point State Park: What’s the Point? walking tour with park interpretive specialist at 12 p.m.
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!
