2 1 NATURE'S GIANTS It's a long drive — more than five hours — from San Francisco to Redwood National Park in northern California, which is located closer to Eugene, Oregon, than any other major city in the Golden State. But the trek will be well worth it for nature lovers, who will relish the opportunity to spend time among some of the largest trees on earth. Redwood National Park and an adjacent state park preserve the distinctive old-growth forest that features redwood trees that can grow hundreds of feet into the air. Groups enjoy hikes, photography walks and ranger-led expeditions through the parks, which include lessons about the bears, seabirds and other animals that live in the ecosystem. Student groups can take advantage of several educational pro- grams in the park. The Redwood Family Coastal Camp is a two- day, one-night backpacking trip along the California Coastal Trail, which connects Redwood national and state parks. Another option, Documentary Explorers Camp, lets young film enthusiasts spend time in the park creating documentaries about its natural wonders.
