National Geographic magazine’s December cover story includes the remarkable findings of League scientists who are studying how redwoods can survive sweeping environmental changes. The feature includes incredible photos, such as a portrait of a 3,200-year-old giant sequoia. Research team members helped National Geographic capture these images, and the organization told us about the experience. Learn how they did it and see photos, a video and a graphic about the photo shoot. Photo courtesy of National Geographic.

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. Hartley was instrumental in launching the League’s Redwoods and Climate Change Initiative, bringing the Master Plan for the Redwoods to the fore, and helping the League address the California State Parks funding and closure crisis. Our Board of Directors has appointed Harry Pollack Chief Operating Officer during the search for a new Executive Director. Learn more.
