An Evening with a Redwood Legend: Photographer Dave Van de Mark
Join the Northcoast Environmental Center as we celebrate the success of Dave’s photographic expedition on Redwood Creek in Redwood National and State Parks.
For over a half century, Van de Mark has photographed the redwood forest he loves as well as the devastation wrought by clear-cut logging. His photographs helped to convince Congress to set aside the original Redwood National Park in 1968, and then to enlarge the park in 1978, taking in ridge to ridge along most of Redwood Creek. Fifty years later, Van de Mark proposed arephotographing expedition to the Park Service, revisiting places he photographed during the “battle” to save the Last Redwoods. Join us for an inspiring evening and meet Dave who will share his adventure through photographs and stories as only he can do.
