As you’ve seen throughout this website, the redwood forest can be a mystical place, and Humboldt Redwoods State Park is home to one of the strangest of these mysteries: albino redwoods. Often called "ghosts of the forest," albino redwoods have white foliage and cannot photosynthesize. These unique trees have baffled scientists for over a hundred years. Redwood researchers Zane Moore and Tom Stapleton will explain the most up-to-date research on these scientific treasures as we journey to a few living examples of these “ghosts.” Come join both men as they start to unravel the mysteries behind these fascinating trees. Tom & Zane will be presenting their findings at Humboldt Redwood State Park on June 27th & 28th. There will be four talks presented over the two-day period in several formats.
