The Humboldt Women’s Save the Redwoods League

Humboldt women played a major role in the creation of Humboldt’s first redwood state park, which they dedicated as a “minister to the destiny of mankind” - a role the redwoods fill more crucially today than ever before.

This piece appears in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Save the Redwoods League.
