Big Basin Redwood Forest With Dr. Traci Bliss (VIRTUAL)

October 21, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Big Basin Redwood Forest: California's Oldest State Park by Traci Bliss book cover

Join Dr. Traci Bliss in conversation about her new book on the history of California’s oldest state park, Big Basin Redwoods State Park.

The epic saga of Big Basin began in the late 1800s, when the surrounding communities saw their once “inexhaustible” redwood forests vanishing. Expanding railways demanded timber as they crisscrossed the nation, but the more redwoods that fell to the woodman’s axe, the greater the effects on the local climate. California’s groundbreaking environmental movement attracted individuals from every walk of life.
