Save the Redwoods League has developed partnerships to encourage people to explore and enjoy California’s most spectacular landscapes.
California’s parks provide unparalleled opportunities for outdoor recreation. Spending time outdoors relieves stress, boosts creativity and imagination, and reinvigorates the mind while promoting active, healthy lifestyles. These benefits can be magnified by spending time with family and friends, strengthening the bonds between us and nature. By offering free day-use park passes, we hope to initiate thousands of new visits to our parks, inspire a love of nature, and establish a strong conservation ethic across diverse generations and communities.
To celebrate 100 years of saving California’s iconic redwood forest, Save the Redwoods League and California State Parks are offered free day-use admission to more than 40 redwood state parks on the second Saturday of each month in 2018. The goal of Free Second Saturdays at Redwood State Parks is to reconnect the people of California with these magnificent natural legacies, to inspire visitors with the beauty and power of the redwoods, and to celebrate Save the Redwoods League’s 100-year conservation legacy.
