“Georgia is a strategic thinker and experienced leader who has dedicated her career to conservation. I’m excited to have her join our leadership team,” said Sam Hodder, president and CEO of Save the Redwoods League. “We are thrilled to have Georgia’s deep marketing and environmental expertise to advance awareness of how the League protects, restores and connects people to our awe-inspiring redwood forests.”

“I am thrilled to be joining the League as it moves into its next stage of growth and success as an organization,” said McIntosh. “Growing up in British Columbia, I developed a strong connection to the outdoors, and I spend as much time in nature as I can—hiking, biking and skiing. It is my hope that California’s redwood forests will be here for generations to come, providing their essential benefits and enjoyment for all. I look forward to working with the League’s dedicated and talented professionals to advance our shared mission. I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity.”

McIntosh most recently held the role of Director of Special Projects at The Trust for Public Land, where she was responsible for program leadership and management of organization-wide priority projects. She also served as the Trust’s interim SVP, Chief Marketing & Communications Officer, leading their work on brand awareness and engagement, public relations, digital, creative and editorial.

McIntosh was previously Vice President for Marketing/Communications at Earthjustice, a nonprofit environmental law organization. She has also worked for several additional nonprofit organizations and marketing agencies.

McIntosh is a graduate of McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. She is also a board member for the Marin Conservation League in San Rafael, California.

As Last Chance Grade Crumbles, Caltrans Considers Two Solutions

For decades, a 3.5-mile section of the highway between Eureka and Crescent City, known as Last Chance Grade, has been plagued by landslides and frequent closures, with no viable alternate routes for the local community, commerce or tourism. The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has been working with local stakeholders for 10 years on a solution. Tragically, their final two roadway alternatives will have substantial impacts on nearby old-growth redwood forest.
