you can help redwoods
Save the Redwoods League has safeguarded the long-term health of a keystone forest with the December 2020 purchase of the Cascade Creek property, home to old-growth and mature second-growth redwoods in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The acquisition creates continuous habitat from the mountains to the Pacific Ocean within the ancestral territory of the Quiroste Tribe.
With many focusing on staycations this year, check out a few ideas for day trips. While parks are open again around California, many travelers are putting off big trips until the pandemic blows over. Thankfully for most Californians, redwoods are closer than you might think, and an inspiring day trip is well within reach.
Molina is a Latino Outdoors outings leader, and with warmth and enthusiasm, she introduces video viewers to the forest’s history and wonders in her favorite park, which she always visits whenever she needs to feel grounded. Molina’s tour is among three Explore the Redwoods videos produced by Latino Outdoors and Save the Redwoods League to offer virtual trips to the coast redwoods and giant sequoia. The joint project advances the League’s mission to connect people of all backgrounds and identities to redwood forests.
