The League thanks our community for responding to our call for public comments on what Giant Sequoia National Monument means to them. Comments from League supporters were counted recently among a record-breaking 2.8 million after the Trump administration ordered a review that threatens protections for 27 incredible places, including Giant Sequoia. The fate of Giant Sequoia is still unknown.

Read about the public responses and our commitment to the monument.

The genome sequences and the screening tools developed will allow researchers to quickly assess genetic diversity in redwood forests to inform plans that restore the health and resilience of these forests as they face environmental stressors such as climate change.
