Santa Cruz Redwood State Parks Free Day
December 8, 2018
An event every month that begins at 12:00am on day Second of the month, repeating until December 8, 2018
In 2018, Save the Redwoods League is celebrating its Centennial. As a way to celebrate redwoods and our Centennial, the League is providing a redwood state parks free day to over 40 redwood state parks every second Saturday of each month throughout the year.
The chief goal is to connect people with these natural legacies for the first time or to rekindle their love for them. Free Second Saturdays are gifts to those who love and care for redwoods.
The redwood forest is one of the world’s most beloved treasures. They are an iconic part of California’s identity and a source of national pride, international recognition and awe. Millions of visitors from across the globe embrace the opportunity to connect with this landscape like no other.
Home to the tallest and largest trees on the planet, the redwood forests are also the world’s most effective carbon sink, sequestering three times more carbon per acre than any other known ecosystems. These are the greatest forests in the world.
