Presented by Oakland Trails in association with Pinecone Pictures, this new 22-minute documentary highlights “Old Survivor,” the last known remaining old-growth redwood in the East Bay hills, and tells the story of Oakland’s resilient, ecologically amazing, and now protected redwood forest. Staffers from Save the Redwoods League, the City of Oakland, and the East Bay Regional Park District are featured in the interviews.
With 750 people in attendance, the film premiered on October 9, 2018 at the Chabot Space & Science Center during the League’s Centennial Celebration Week, a weeklong series of events commemorating 100 years of protecting California’s redwood forests. League President and CEO, Sam Hodder, spoke at the premiere and stressed the importance of restoring the young, recovering forests that surround and sustain the remaining ancient trees, like Old Survivor.Visit Event Website >>
