The world around us provides endless opportunities for indulging our curiosities and delving into life's mysteries.
The Habitat Launch
In the hills above Penang, Malaysia, you'll find the Habitat, a world-class ecotourism destination replete with opportunities to experience and learn about the rainforest firsthand by walking through and amongst the trees. Striving to conserve the forest for the long-term, the team at the Habitat brought Meg Lowman and her forest conservation and canopy exploration expertise to the project. Watch this video to learn more.
EPiphytes on the redwoods
There is a secret world of epiphytes high in the redwoods that Rikke Reese Næsborg is studying. Her research, funded by the Save the Redwoods League, is the first comprehensive look at what species occur in the southern part of the coast redwood range. Join her as she explores the trees from the ground all the way to the treetop in search of epiphtyes!
Who knew ferns could tell you so much? Through her project Fern Watch, Emily Burns, has been tracking western sword ferns throughout the coast redwood range since 2012. She's interested in finding out which forests throughout the coast redwood range are the healthiest. Watch this video to find out more about Fern Watch and how you can get involved!
THE Mighty Banana Slug
Every creature great and small plays a role in the coast redwood forest. These banana slugs contribute to the forest by eating things other animals won't and by giving it back to the forest, in the form of poop! You can help others learn more about banana slugs with the Save the Redwoods League mascot Sunny the Slug!
REDWOODS AND CLIMATE CHANGE HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM
Save the Redwoods League is getting urban students into their local redwood forests to gain appreciation of redwoods' critical role in combating climate change. This project was started by Deborah Zierten, the Education and Interpretation Manager at Save the Redwoods League.
Spring INSPIRES newt love
While working in Montgomery Woods State Reserve, we were lucky enough to see red-bellied newts carrying out their yearly mating ritual, which ends up looking something like a ball of newts.
