With our harps, we act as a voice for the trees to protect and nurture them for future generations. Their survival is threatened by logging, privatization of land, and climate change. It is possible and necessary to preserve these ancient, life-giving forests. Old growth Redwoods are especially critical because they sequester more carbon dioxide than any other living thing on earth. We are dependent on them, and they need our help.

-Diana Stork and Jasmine Low, MCMF Directors
