Maps from the mother of the redwoods

Views of adventure.

I took this picture while working on the Lucille Vinyard collection that is now kept at the Humboldt State University Library.

Lucille was an environmental activist in Northern California. Known as the Mother of the Redwoods, Lucille Vinyard has been an essential member of the Environmental movement and helped establish Redwood National Forest.

Lucille kept daily journals depicting both historical and environmental occurrences, but also offers an insight into the daily life of a beloved activist.

You can find a digitized journal collection in the Humboldt State University Library’s special collections.

Ta for now ❤️
