A new group called Friends of Richardson Grove State Park will host a public rally at noon on Friday, April 1 at the Garberville Town Square. Rally organizer Barbara Kennedy invites everyone to attend.

“This will be a family-friendly event focusing on educating the public about the ill-advised highway-widening project that not only threatens the ancient redwoods of Richardson Grove State Park, but could also change the rural character of Humboldt County,” said Kennedy in a release.

The event will feature local speakers, musicians including Bud Rogers, Jefferson Parsons and Defenders of the Holy Grove, educational literature, sample letters to send to elected representatives, a craft table for children and the opportunity to discuss  the effects this project might have on our State Park and local community.

The rally was originally organized for March 18, but was rescheduled for April 1, because of adverse weather conditions.
