The center hosted a grand opening last Memorial Day. This new center honors the legacy of those who preserved these groves in the past, and tells the story of the giant sequoias.
You can honor your loved ones and benefit the redwood forest this holiday season. For as little as $10, your honoree will get a lovely ecard letting them know you’ve made this special gift. For just $25, your ecard can accompany a gift of a League membership, and for $75, your paper or electronic card will announce that you have had a seedling planted in a redwood forest.
SAN FRANCISCO (December 3, 2013)—Save the Redwoods League has joined #GivingTuesday, a first-of-its-kind national effort that will harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday will inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support and help create a better world. Learn more about #GIVINGTUESDAY and give today!
It’s why Save the Redwoods League exists – giant redwoods, centuries old, up for sale by private owners. A developer or timber company has put in a bid for the property. We must be prepared to respond quickly with funding in place. Help make sure we are always ready by donating to our Emergency Projects Campaign.
