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.”

About Save the Redwoods League


Since 1918, Save the Redwoods League has protected and restored redwood forests and connected people with their peace and beauty so these wonders of the natural world flourish.

High School Volunteers Improve Big Sur Park Trails


Trails in Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park were improved this month, thanks to our members and a $28,600 grant from Save the Redwoods League. The grant enabled high school student volunteers (pictured) to repair the fire-damaged Oak Grove Trail and more in this redwood park. This is the fourth year the League has supported a crew from the Student Conservation Association, which fosters career development in land conservation and resource management.
