California’s Cathedrals: Redwood State Parks

90 percent of California’s original redwood forests are gone, but what remains are protected by a fragile web of California state and national parks.

Due to budget cuts, many of California redwood state parks are on the closure list, therefore potentially threatening these ancient and magnificent species. Here are some of the voices of people who know redwoods best, and what their concerns are.
