Thanks for making Giving TREESday a success

Over 700 generous donors helped us cross the finish line to hit our Giving TREESday goal to raise $50,000. Those funds, matched by the Bently Foundation, will go directly to help purchase Alder Creek, the world’s last significant unprotected giant sequoia property!

This Giving TREESday was truly unique. With a guest appearance from the Stagg Tree, the fifth largest tree in the world, and wonderful press coverage including a shout out in Sunset Magazine, we are so grateful for the outpouring of support.

The Bently Foundation is so inspired by the response to Giving TREESday that they have agreed to continuing matching all new gifts to Alder Creek up to a total of $250,000! If you missed our Giving TREESday campaign, there is still time to have your gift matched and help us achieve the goal of purchasing Alder Creek by December 31st.

Thank you to everyone who is helping to safeguard one of the world’s irreplaceable treasures: beautiful Alder Creek.

How old are these redwoods, really?


It’s the question that usually comes right after the one about height: “How old do you think this redwood is?”
And in many ways, the answer to this second question can be even more stunning than the first.

With snow in the Sierra, we thought this would be a great time to share this video of Alder Creek covered in white. The massive cinnamon trunks of these ancient sequoia stand out beautifully against the snow. We’re inching closer to our goal of $15.65 million to purchase and protect this incredible landscape for future generations.
