Starting with the October issue, all members who have provided their email addresses will begin to receive the Redwood Needles electronically rather than on paper. This shift offers several advantages: we can include live links to web-based information and email addresses, graphics can be offered in full color, and we’ll save a few trees and a little gas. It will also provide a significant financial benefit to the Chapter, allowing us to use more of our limited funds for the direct protection of the environment. If you really would rather continue to receive a paper copy of the newsletter through the mail, or have any comment, please contact: ERedwoodNeedles@gmail.com.
The Redwood Chapter's Take Action page highlights several issues that the Club is focusing its efforts on.
