You can help protect redwoods and enhance our beloved redwood parks by voting “Yes” on Prop 68 in June.

Jackson does what she can to expand the horizons of her students. Each month she takes three or four students to a regional park for an extended hike. She has also participated in outreach programs sponsored by universities and conservation groups, including Exploring Your Watershed, a Save the Redwoods League project that teaches kids about the linkages between the East Bay’s redwood forests and San Francisco Bay.

But the Yurok tribe — whose ancestors lived along the Klamath River in Northern California — still revere and celebrate them.
