Save the Redwoods League members are invited to join League staff and volunteers for a cookout, music, kids’ activities and guided hikes on Saturday, July 16, 2011, at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park (pictured).
Save the Redwoods League is honored to be one of only 10 nonprofits certified by the strict San Francisco Green Business Program, which helps San Francisco businesses operate in an environmentally responsible manner and recognizes them for their efforts. Certification means City and County of San Francisco auditors have verified that a business complies with stringent environmental standards to reduce waste, prevent pollution and conserve resources.
You, our members, can be proud of all Save the Redwoods League has achieved in fiscal year 2010 thanks to your generosity: The League protected almost 6,000 acres of redwood forest and supporting landscapes and accelerated restoration of logged forests, planting more than 15,000 trees and removing 3 miles of logging roads.
Robert Van Pelt, PhD, a scientist who’s part of the League’s Redwoods and Climate Change Initiative, is profiled in the new book, Keepers of the Trees: A Guide to Re-Greening North America. The book includes profiles of 13 other North Americans whose lives have been shaped by the forests they are fighting to preserve. Author Ann Linnea offers a captivating look at Van Pelt as a Renaissance man: a big tree hunter, scientist and exquisite artist.
