Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park is located in the Santa Cruz Mountains and is most famous for the 40- acre grove of towering old-growth redwood trees. These trees also inspired some of California’s earliest redwood preservation efforts. This mountain habitat offers species we do not get on the valley oor including Allen's Hummingbirds, Pileated Woodpeckers, Swainson's Thrush, Wilson's Warbler, Black-throated Gray Warbler, Brown Creeper and Pacific Wren. This tour will consist
of walking level trails in this park. We’ll also stop at the visitor’s center. Biologist Ryan Phillips will help Lisa co- lead this tour.
