Curiosity Stories

Curiosity Stories are presented by Sempervirens Fund, California’s first land trust, protecting redwoods in the Santa Cruz mountains. We hope Curiosity Stories inspire you to pursue your own questions about redwoods, the natural world, and so much more. The more we learn about redwoods, the more we act to protect and care for them.

Episode 1: This Tree Has Gone Through Everything

In the debut episode of Curiosity Stories, follow artist and illustrator Jane Kim, of Ink Dwell studio, on her journey to create art and understanding from an old-growth redwood. Embark into the forest with her as she cuts "cookies" from an ancient stump at Camp Jones Gulch with professional forester Bruce Baker—the first step in creating art prints of tree rings. What can we learn about the history of the forest from this stump?
