Ingeborg Kuhn's son had a redwood seedling planted in her honor. RFFI.ORG included that redwood in last weekend's special planting we did at McCoy Creek site in our Usal Redwood Forest. RFFI is extremely grateful to Inge's ongoing generosity. She allows us complimentary use of her stunning redwood photographs to help promote our work. Celebrate Inge!
On Feb 15, 2020, RFFI.ORG and more than 20 friends and family planted 73 redwood seedlings in honor of Louis Hoaglin, deeply loved and respected by family and our community. Louis, a RFFI Outstanding Volunteer and advisor on our Redwood Forest Council, has guided RFFI since the purchase of the Usal Redwood Forest in 2007. He advised on vegetation management and re-introduced native uses of trees and plants to RFFI and the community. He and his wife, Peggy, were prime movers in the establishment of the 8-acre preserve, Chinquapin Springs Acorn Grove within Usal for use by native peoples. A redwood was planted for every year of Louis’ well-lived life!
