More than 170 Save the Redwoods League members enjoyed a cookout, music, kids’ activities and guided hikes on our July 16 Member Appreciation Day at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park (pictured). Not a League member? Join now for only $19 to be invited to next year’s event!
Members traveled from as far away as Nebraska, Texas and Virginia for the event, which featured a short walk and more strenuous hike through ancient redwoods at Henry Cowell. With members’ support, Save the Redwoods League has helped protect 827 acres at this park.
Before those activities, members listened to the Bean Creek Bluegrass Band, and kids (and the young-at-heart) enjoyed facepainting and a scavenger hunt.
“It was exciting for us to be able to attend the League event during our family summer vacation,” said Michael White of Dallas, Texas. “We enjoyed making new friends, hiking, and the kids learned about the wonders of the redwood forest.”
League Executive Director Ruskin K. Hartley thanked members for attending. “Our members’ support is vital for our work,” Hartley said, “and we’re so glad you joined us today so that we could show our appreciation.”
