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.
