Big Basin’s Campfire Center Restored
After years of work, Big Basin Redwoods State Park’s historic Campfire Center has been fully restored. The restoration project was funded with over $275,000 in funds allocated by Sempervirens Fund’s Board of Directors, including a $50,000 grant from the Jeangerard Foundation. The Campifire Center includes a covered stage, 139 redwood benches, and a huge fire ring that provides light fo the free and unforgettable nature and history shows put on by Big Basin staff. The restoration project involved replacing all of the damaged benches with new ones made from naturally downed redwood trees, milled on site at the park.
