San Francisco, Calif. (July 25, 2018) – Save the Redwoods League, which is celebrating its centennial year as the only nonprofit dedicated to protecting and restoring California’s coast redwood and giant sequoia forests, will join the San Francisco Giants, who are celebrating their 60th anniversary in California, at AT&T Park on Saturday, August 25 to commemorate their milestone anniversaries during a pregame ceremony on the field at 12:30 p.m. before the Giants play the Rangers at 1:05 p.m.

“The Giants and the California redwoods are iconic symbols of why the Bay Area is such a tremendous place to live,” said Sam Hodder, president and CEO of Save the Redwoods League. “To bring all of these giants together in our Centennial year helps us to tell our story and inspire the people of the Bay Area and beyond to engage with us as we save these extraordinary forests.”

Featured on the scoreboard, before select games throughout the second half of the 2018 season, the Giants will show a video of their mascot Lou Seal and League President Sam Hodder on an adventure together in Big Basin Redwoods State Park near Santa Cruz. The video celebrates redwood forests—California’s other famous giants—and encourages fans to get outdoors. On August 25, in-game scoreboard messages and Save the Redwoods League staff, who will be located in the Giants Community Clubhouse on the Promenade Level, will share information about the importance of protecting and celebrating these natural national treasures.

“What a monumental year for both of our organizations, as we celebrate significant anniversaries as members of the San Francisco community,” said Larry Baer, president and CEO of the San Francisco Giants. “As a fourth-generation Californian, it makes me proud to be associated with Save the Redwoods League as they celebrate their 100 years of hard work and success. Redwoods are the original giants of the West Coast, and I’m thankful for the League’s efforts to protect these amazing trees. This is truly a partnership of Giants!”

Save the Redwoods League is offering a Giants for Giants sweepstakes ahead of the game. Sign up by August 27 to receive emails from the League and get a chance to win a Centennial Redwood Celebration Golden Poppy Annual Pass and other fun prizes.
