Since 2000, we have awarded more than 300 grants to dedicated educators who provide high-quality redwood forest education both in and out of the classroom.

A celebration this month commemorated the late naturalist Jeff Norman (pictured) and his commitment to protecting Big Sur. His property was safeguarded when it was sold to Save the Redwoods League. The celebration featured the unveiling of a new plaque marking the history of 20 acres that we recently purchased and restored in 2010, thanks to our members. The ridgetop property, bordered by Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park and Los Padres National Forest, is upslope from old-growth redwood forest.
