North Coast Conversations: The Save the Redwoods League

Untitled design (16).png

This week we are meeting with Dr. Joanna Nelson and Leslie Parra of The Save the Redwoods League to learn more about the Redwood Research Starter Grant, which aims to provide POC students with interest in redwood and sequoia forests with a starter grant of up to $5000 to conduct their research.

Formed in 1918, Save the Redwoods League has been a cornerstone in preserving both old and new growth redwood forests across California and in the process, has protected over 200,000 acres of forest land and created 66 redwood parks and reserves.

The Redwood Research Starter Grant is offering up to $5000 for POC students interested in researching coast redwood and giant sequoia forests.

The starter grants aim to provide introductory opportunities for members of underrepresented communities to explore ideas in the redwood research space, or potentially enhance the work of those who are already working in this space.

To apply for the grant, please visit this link. All applications are due by January 31st.
