Save the Redwoods League, a nonprofit committed to the protection of California’s iconic coast redwood and giant sequoia forests, presents Take Me to the Trees: A Redwoods Celebration, a free virtual event that is open to the public, 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. (PT) Saturday, October 17, 2020.
This live-streamed celebratory evening includes a virtual redwoods tour, the ultimate redwood park trivia, a silent and live auction featuring one-of-a-kind redwood experiences, and musical entertainment by GRAMMY® Award-nominated, multi-platinum country artist, Cam, who will perform her hit song “Redwood Tree,” from her new album due out October 30. Plus, a Virtual Dance Party with globally recognized musician, humanitarian, activist, and award-winning filmmaker from the Bay Area, Michael Franti.
Take Me to the Trees: A Redwoods Celebration is an annual benefit event for the League’s redwood parks programs, which provide vital funding and support to enhance visitor experiences in California’s redwood parks and preserves. This year, that includes areas like Big Basin Redwoods State Park and other redwood parks that have been impacted by wildfires. The virtual event is free to attend, with select, optional sponsor packages available for those who would like to create their own special celebration with friends and family.
Enjoy the virtual road trip to the trees that inspired the modern-day conservation movement from the safety and comfort of home. Guests will travel from the gateway to the tallest trees in the world to a hidden ancient forest on the Sonoma Coast to the crown jewel of Giant Sequoia National Monument and numerous stops in between.
Special sponsorship packages include options for hosting live or virtual home dinner parties, complete with catered meals from McCalls Catering and wines from Wentworth Vineyard & Ranch, and Rock + Clay — all while providing vital support for the League’s redwood park programs.
