Save the Redwoods League uses redwood science to guide our conservation work and we are ready to invest in new studies that will help us save the redwoods. Since 1997, we have supported redwood and giant sequoia forest research on a range of topics including restoration, ecology, and climate change. If you are a researcher working with a nonprofit institution (e.g. university or public agency), you are eligible to apply for funding through our Research Grants Program.

Pre-proposals are due before 6 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, September 16, 2015 and if your pre-proposal is selected by our review committee for further consideration, a complete application with full proposal is due on Wednesday, November 11, 2015. Proposals on all topics that advance redwood forest science to inform conservation and restoration are welcome in 2015.
