The Redwoods have stood tall through histories of disaster and destruction and are still here to help us breathe.
While schools are closed and shelter-in-place is in effect throughout California, the forests can remind us of our opportunity to connect.
Whether you’re able to make it to local redwood parks and maintain six feet of social distancing or you need to stay home, there are many ways to make use of the League’s and our partners’ resources and feel the essence of the natural world.
