      SIERRA CLUB MONTHLY PROGRAM

      The next meeting of the San Gorgonio Chapter, Sierra Club will be Tuesday, October 1, 2019, 7:30 p.m. at the San Bernardino County Museum, 2014 Orange Tree Lane, Redlands. Our speakers Laura and James Wasserman will present a program titled, Who Saved the Redwoods? Please join us to learn about the dramatic but forgotten story of the women, and the men they worked with, who were the first group to preserve an important span of California’s coastal redwood forests.

      The basis for their program is the book they published earlier this year, Who Saved the Redwoods? The Unsung Heroines of the 1920s Who Fought for Our Redwood Forests. It is a dramatic history of the first campaigns to save the redwood forests of Humboldt County during the 1920s and 1930s and it highlights the significant role of the women who successfully fended off the logging industry as they paved the way for the modern environmental movement.

      “We made this lost history of women’s conservation efforts in the redwood forests the primary focus of our book, with the intention of restoring credit where it is due. Throughout this period that marked the beginning of the modern environmental movement, women and the men they worked with through the Save the Redwoods League and Sierra Club, held to a powerful ideal of civilization in which the wonders of nature are not destroyed but passed intact to future generations.”

      Laura Wasserman is a long-time institutional researcher and research coordinator in the private and public sectors. Her professional experience includes extensive business market analysis and polling for national opinion research, political campaigns and environmental issues. She has experience in evaluation of local, state and federal government programs and comprehensive report writing in California and Alaska.

      James Wasserman has worked 33 years as a newspaper and wire service reporter, columnist and television commentator in California and Alaska. His specialties include land use and environmental issues. He also worked as a California state government policy analyst, authoring investigative and environmental public policy reports.
