Hope and Resilience

After wildfires swept through Big Basin Redwood State Park, the fate of the historic redwoods remains unknown. Santa Clara played a key role in protecting this space, resulting in the first state park designation in California. The Santa Clara tree, named for the effort, has stood through the centuries as a symbol of resilience. Recent reports indicate it may still offer a beacon of hope. Discover more about the Bronco connection to these majestic trees »
