How Your Seedling Gifts Help Heal Forest


Thanks to your gifts through the seedling planting program, more than 2,000 redwoods and 2,600 Douglas-firs have been planted in the last two years to restore logged forests in and around Humboldt Redwoods State Park. Ancient redwoods were logged heavily for decades, but your donations make possible the effort to heal these lands. These plantings are a timeless commemoration of your loved ones. Your gifts also support education programs that bring the wonder of the redwoods to young students. Learn more about how you helped.

League Thanks Hartley for 15 Years of Service


The League has accepted Executive Director Ruskin K. Hartley’s resignation. After 15 years of service, Hartley feels it is time for new challenges.

Our Board of Directors has appointed Harry Pollack Chief Operating Officer during the search for a new Executive Director. Learn more.
