After a decade studying the impacts of climate change throughout redwood forests, Emily Burns, PhD, and Stephen Sillett, PhD, share new insight into how coast redwood trees are growing today. See the remarkable new findings about second-growth forests.
The redwood forests are among the Diaz family’s favorite places. Jami, her husband Xavier, and their sons, Nolan, 8, and Hollis, 4, love to take trips from their San Jose home to decompress among the giant trees. So when they learned on Facebook about the League’s 2018 Free Second Saturdays in redwood parks, they jumped at the chance to explore different forests.
Today’s youths are destined to be tomorrow’s climate champions. That’s why it’s so critical to empower them to learn about climate change from all angles — including from inside a redwood forest. Through the League’s Redwoods and Climate Change High School Program, students gain crucial environmental literacy.
This year, Save the Redwoods League wants to help you make a resolution you can keep (in 20 minutes or less, for free). Everybody needs a legal will, but too many people put it off year after year. Make your will today, and include a gift to the League to ensure the protection of our redwood forests for generations far in the future.
