More InformationShow full item record
In the recent past we have seen a rapid decline in the presence of old growth Redwood groves, particularly Coast Redwoods groves in northern California and southern Oregon. For various reasons, we have been losing these very valuable ecosystems and iconic stands of trees at an alarming rate. There are multiple organizations and programs that are trying to help these trees, but a lot still needs to be done. Especially, when it comes to public perception, understanding, and our willingness to help save the Redwoods. Through various research methodologies including the use of historical documents and accounts, interviews with related professionals, case study examinations, and more, many different topics were explored in depth. All helping to inform and improve the ideas imagined. Improving the visitors experience in these ancient Coast Redwood groves could be very beneficial to ongoing conservation efforts. These experiences could be welcoming to visitors, full of educational information, and inspire people to connect with these Redwoods at a deeper level. These experiences could also include access to some relevant research data and important forestry work as a part of the educational resources.
