National Geographic Features League Research


National Geographic magazine’s December cover story includes the remarkable findings of League scientists who are studying how redwoods can survive sweeping environmental changes. The feature includes incredible photos, such as a portrait of a 3,200-year-old giant sequoia. Research team members helped National Geographic capture these images, and the organization told us about the experience. Photo courtesy of National Geographic.

Wonderful redwoods enthusiasts like you contributed the $100,000 needed to gain a matching gift for San Vicente Redwoods (formerly CEMEX Redwoods), the largest unprotected redwood forest in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Pete and Patty Mattson, long-time Save the Redwoods League members, generously donated the matching funds. Thank you so much!
