If you missed the October premiere of Old Survivor, now’s your chance to see the new 22-minute documentary at screenings in California this year. The film highlights the last known remaining old-growth redwood in the East Bay hills, and tells the story of Oakland’s resilient, ecologically amazing, and now protected redwood forest. Staffers from Save the Redwoods League are featured.
As we reflect on 2018 — the Centennial year for Save the Redwoods League — we’re grateful for supporters like you. Among our many achievements, together we protected two of the three largest unprotected old-growth groves remaining, presented our Centennial Vision for Redwoods Conservation, and celebrated with more than 140,000 new friends and dedicated supporters at dozens of events throughout California. Thank you for making a difference.
Greg Sarris, the longtime chairman of the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria (Southern Pomo and Coast Miwok), recounts a tale about the origin of redwoods in The Ancient Ones. The work is part of a collection of essays in the new book, The Once and Future Forest: California’s Iconic Redwoods, published to commemorate the Centennial year of Save the Redwoods League and now available for purchase.
