Under Sam Hodder’s leadership, Save the Redwoods League has permanently protected over 20,000 acres of redwoods and launched ambitious forest restoration projects. Hodder guided the League’s 100th anniversary celebrations in 2018 and the development of its Centennial Vision for Redwoods Conservation. The League’s vision is a bold 100-year plan to accelerate land protection and the regeneration of coast redwood and giant sequoia forests across their natural ranges, and to reimagine visitor experiences in redwood parks. Hodder has further advanced the League’s Redwoods and Climate Change Initiative, a project that led to pioneering research on the unique ecosystems thriving in the old-growth redwood canopy. He has also sharpened the League’s focus on investing in educational programs and enhancing redwood park experiences.
