If we are to secure the long-term health and survival of redwoods and our communities, we need to connect the next generation to the forests. Kids need to first experience and be inspired by the awe of these special places, and that's why it's so important to have programs that provide schools, parks and community organizations with the resources needed to plants seeds of wonder.

Education Grants Program

Since 2000, Save the Redwoods League has awarded more than 300 grants to provide high-quality redwood forest education both in and out of the classroom. The League grants funds to schools, park associations and other qualified nonprofits that provide redwoods education.

Our grant program aims to foster a deeper understanding of redwoods among diverse audiences through visits to the forest and related educational experiences.

Visits to a redwood park, particularly as children, have traditionally nurtured support for redwood forest conservation. We believe that if people experience the majesty and ecological complexity of the redwoods, they will be inspired to support redwood forest protection. These direct experiences may also lead to further outdoor recreation, inspire positive risk-taking and confidence-building among young people, and contribute to healthier communities overall.
