Councillors

Our 60-member voting Board of Councillors elects the Board of Directors. These volunteers also serve on committees and advise the League. They reflect the wide array of people who are passionate about and committed to the redwoods.

Your Gifts Secure Match for Santa Cruz Old-Growth

Thanks to you, we've met our matching gift challenge! Thanks to the generous J.A. Woollam Foundation, an additional $68,000 of your gifts were matched in our Santa Cruz Mountains Old-Growth Campaign. The J.A. Woollam Foundation donated the gift in addition to its initial pledge of $100,000! We also thank our anonymous donor for the gift of $55,000 to this campaign. So far we've raised about $5.5 million of the $8 million needed to purchase and protect some of the most magnificent old-growth redwood forest still left in the heart of the Santa Cruz Mountains. You can help us meet our ultimate goal. Learn more.
