Experience the calm of the redwoods at home

We all need ways to find connection with the community and build our sense of feeling grounded in a changing world. It’s more important than ever to deep dive into our inner reserves in order to find a few quiet moments of strength, courage, peace, hope, and resilience to draw on.

Here are some things you can do to recharge, get centered, find inspiration, keep busy, and perhaps learn something new.

“I am a bunny.
My name is Nicholas.
I live in a hollow tree.”

I forgot how much my older boys loved that book when they were little, to the point of destroying it. I found another copy recently and Asher loves it just as much!

We visited our old stomping grounds, a trail that has a few really fun hollow redwood trees. 
The boys wanted to just stay play for a long time. 
Calum is in there too when I snapped this pic, you just can’t see him. He said, “Mom, can we please go get snacks and Daddy and come back and live in this tree???” 😂

One of our highlights this past summer was kayaking along the gorgeous Smith River with views of the mighty Redwoods. My sons absolutely loved this experience (we highly recommend redwood_rides for this tour-part kayaking part hiking). ✨
.

Both sons had been asking to visit this region of Northern California for years-and were in complete awe of the Redwoods-especially their immense size and unique beauty. I’m immensely thankful they appreciate being outside in nature, and request to visit such places-which is important for their physical and mental health! ✨

Note: Surprisingly, this precious old growth forest (Jedediah Smith State Park) is not under a current wildfire threat, although there are still massive fires further south (Dixie and Caldor still aren’t contained ) in California. Once again, we see how climate change has had a tremendous negative effect on crucial habitats/ecosystems which we vitality dependent on. ✨

Of the many places we’ve been, one of the places we wish we had spent more time was with the redwoods in Northern California.

Redwoods are descendants of a group of conifers that lived more than 144 million years ago 🤯

These incredible organisms are deeply connected to the ecosystem and one of the only reasons they’re still around is because a group of wise people wanted to protect them. 🌱

They formed the Save the Redwoods League in 1918. This group bought development rights to redwood forests and still works today to protect and maintain them. 

Without protection, these ancient trees are open to destruction and logging. 🪓

We are grateful to those before us who took it upon themselves to protect these ecosystems. 

Redwoods are unique and fascinating. To learn more, visit: www.savetheredwoods.org
