Rob of the REDWOODS – Return to the KINGS

Rob of the Redwoods

My ongoing adventures in forest and wildland protection, conservation, advocacy, restoration, recreation, and reconnection, in the redwoods, and beyond.

Rob is originally from Utica, Ny. He has a MS from Syracuse University. He now calls Arcata, Ca his home.  He is a California Forest and Wildlife Advocate.
