Save the date! Please join us for an afternoon of live music, free root beer floats, and general merriment underneath the giants sequoias of Martins Street. Laura Gibson will perform as well as a local bluegrass band and several acoustic guitar players. We will raffle off a New Belgium Brewing fat tire bike and we are looking into having our friends at Expedition Old Growth offer guided tours UP the giant sequoias! Facebook event page here.
Now that the weather is getting warmer and drier we are encouraging school groups to come and visit Save The Giants Park. The first of these visits took place last week when a Mr. Steinke's 5th grade class hiked over from Woodstock Elementary School. The students played and relaxed in the shade of the three giants sequoias and learned about the community efforts which preserved these century old sequoias for generations to come. We think it makes for a fine lesson in both nature appreciation and community engagement. If you are an educator and would like to arrange for a visit please get in touch and also check out our lesson plans here.
