Bay Area Youth Harp Ensemble in the Redwoods!
The Bay Area Youth Harp Ensemble (BAYHE) has just released their second video to continue to fundraise and protect the trees. To date $20,000 has been raised towards this project.
BAYHE made a trip to Humboldt to play amongst the redwood giants in summer of 2016 and to create these incredible videos. Through the creation of these videos, they intend to raise awareness, and to encourage and sustain preservation efforts. Now we all have the opportunity to experience these amazing and talented young women play beautiful music in such a remarkable setting! A special thanks to the Kickstarter backers that helped make their journey possible, and Triple Spiral Productions.
Humboldt Redwoods State Park
Located along the Eel River in northern California, Humboldt Redwoods State Park contains some of the world's most majestic ancient redwood groves. The park encompasses over 53,000 acres, including 17,000 acres of old-growth coast redwoods. In 1921 Save the Redwoods League dedicated the first Memorial Grove, Colonel Raynal C. Bolling Memorial Grove, in what is now known as Humboldt Redwoods State Park. Today the park contains a diverse coast redwood ecosystem, which includes Rockefeller Forest, the largest remaining old-growth forest in the world, and the entire Bull Creek watershed.
With more than 250 camp sites, 100 miles of hiking, biking, and riding trails, and the scenic 32-mile Avenue of the Giants, Humboldt Redwoods State Park offers something for everyone. Whether you have just a single day to visit or a week long vacation to explore, a journey into the redwood forest is sure to be an awe-inspiring experience. The park is open year 'round and recreational activities are available throughout the four seasons.
