the enduring power of giant sequoias
Ever thought about what it would be like to go backpacking in the giant sequoias? A small contingent of League staffers took a weekend backpacking trip in Alder Creek, and left with some amazing photos and new perspectives.

The ambitious Forever Forest campaign — now concluded — will fund key initiatives to lay the foundation for a new era of redwoods conservation.
