June 2021 – Eureka, California – To celebrate Northern California’s new forest canopy trail, which features some of the world’s tallest trees, Eureka hotels are offering free redwood seedlings to guests who go on the attraction.
The Redwood Sky Walk, which officially opens June 4th, 2021, in Eureka’s community park and zoo, is the longest arboreal trail in the Western United States. The $4 million canopy walk, reaching 100 feet above the forest floor, showcases old growth trees rivaling those of nearby Redwood National Park and the Avenue of the Giants.
“One of the greatest rewards of hosting people from all over the world is sharing the wonders of the redwoods,” said Gary Stone, director of the Eureka Lodging Alliance (ELA), the primary donor for the Redwood Sky Walk project. “We’re pleased to have worked with the Sequoia Park Zoo so that people can experience these remarkable trees from new heights.”
Most of the quarter-mile walkway is ADA compliant and, for more intrepid visitors, offers a bonus adventure leg with square open mesh decking, making a thrilling but safe back and forth sway.
The series of suspended bridges and tree platforms overlooks Sequoia Park, which consists of almost 70 acres of redwoods, springs, creeks, meadows, hidden grotto with waterfalls, and miles of paved and dirt trails.
Entrance to the Redwood Sky Walk is included with admission to the Sequoia Park Zoo, a fun-sized menagerie complete with red pandas, bush dogs, spider monkeys, river otters and other irresistible and rare animals. California’s oldest certified zoo, it’s 270 miles north of San Francisco on Hwy 101.
After doing the elevated experience, guests who email photos of themselves on it to firstname.lastname@example.org will receive a promo code to get a free seedling shipped to them, compliments of the Jonsteen Company.
“The more we learn about the benefits of trees and forests, the more amazing and essential they reveal themselves to be for all life on this planet,” said Jonathan Claasen, owner of Jonsteen, an international forest nursery products distributer based in Humboldt County, California. “This attraction is a fantastic new way to learn about and experience the high-flying majesty of the redwoods.”
Limit one seedling per family. Retail value $8.99. A small $4.60 shipping and handling charge covers delivery to anywhere in the United States. Promo good until August 4th, 2021.
