Review Oct: A virtual guided tour to Humboldt Redwoods State Park, California!

We joined Erin Gates from California State Parks PORTS for a stroll through Humboldt Redwoods State Park

For October’s meeting, following our very brief AGM where we welcomed our new committee, we travelled across the globe for a virtual guided tour to Humboldt Redwoods State Park, California! We joined Erin Gates from California State Parks PORTS for a stroll through Humboldt Redwoods State Park, home to the largest stand of old growth redwood forest remaining in the world.

These giants, the tallest living things on earth, historically covered much of the Pacific Northwest of the United States, but logging in the early and mid 20th Century cut down 96% of old growth Redwoods, with only 4% remaining today.

We walked virtually among these magnificent trees with Erin as she shares the stories they have to tell – about resilience, adaptations, and the history of their preservation which began with a women’s garden group in the early 20th century.
