Looking for redwood stocking stuffers?

Well, search no more!

I’ve stumbled upon a few redwood-themed items while I was working on a story for Chicago Parent Magazine. These trinkets are fun and creative gifts that will remind your friends and loved ones about the majestic redwood forest while supporting one of our beloved parks, Muir Woods National Monument. These special gifts will also (hopefully) inspire New Year’s resolutions to get active and outdoors. Now that’s a gift that keeps on giving!

If you are on a tight schedule you can order them online, but if you have a couple of hours to spare this weekend I think it would be nice to have some quiet time by adding a visit to the park to your “to do list” while shopping for Christmas. I can’t think of a better way to unwind and de-stress before next week. Can you?

Check out these great gifts!

Why are Christmas trees pointy on top?


Why are Christmas trees shaped the way they are, pointy on top and wide at the bottom?  It’s because their growth is regulated by hormones.  One such hormone (called auxin) is produced at the growing tip of the treetop and Continued
