Redwood EdRedwood  Ed, written by Michael Roa, is  a guide designed for those who want to learn and those who want to  help others learn about the magnificent coastal redwood environment.  The focus of Redwood Ed is on  the Sequoia sempervirens species and can be used throughout the coastal redwood region, from southern Oregon to Big Sur. Redwood Ed  is written for teachers, docents, parents, youth group leaders, naturalists and  anyone who wants a comprehensive guide to the coast redwood forests and parks.  It is intended to provide information in a format that is easy-to-use and  understand,
rather than an in-depth scientific study of the redwood region and  parks. 

Redwood  Ed provides the user with information on:

  • The human history of the coastal redwood region
  • Basic scientific principles (in essence, a review of high school science)
  • The  sciences particular to the Coast Redwood ecosystem
  • How to set up and conduct a field trip to a redwood park
  • Lessons and  activities created for pre-trip information, in-the-field activities and post-trip review
  • Up-to-date  resources and Contact Lists

You can obtain copies of Redwood Ed by downloading or ordering hard copies or DVDs.
