Creating the Next Generation of Redwood Parks & Reserves

Take Me to the Trees is a benefit event to support the public access planning for two redwood properties recently protected by Save the Redwoods League: Harold Richardson Redwoods Reserve, 730 acres of pristine coast redwood forest that features the tallest and biggest ancient redwoods in Sonoma County, and Alder Creek, a spectacular 530-acre property that boasts hundreds of giant sequoia, over 400 of which are six feet or more in diameter, including the Stagg Tree, the fifth largest tree known in the world. Join us to help create the next generation of redwood parks and reserves!
