Take a FREE, glorious, all expense paid ride into the Giant Sequoia National Monument and be reminded of YOUR connection to the wild...

Come have a gourmet picnic lunch with us at scenic and rarely seen places within the Giant Sequoia National Monument/Sequoia National Forest! Be part of the 1% richest humans and see places that most poor souls will never see.

Lunch provided the regions best restaurants including  Monet's Wine and Bistro located in Exeter, Vintage Press, Nelson Tavern, Frank's at Springville Inn, Pandera. Enjoy free transportation from Porterville and Springville and see what the Monument means to you! We will have a variety of In-flight presentation about public lands, meadow restoration, Giant sequoias and more. 

Why are we doing this? We want to help you fall in love!

We want to show you the amazing features of the GSNM and Sequoia National Forest, both of which are public lands that YOU OWN, so that these wild places will follow your imagination home and you will become warriors in their defense.

Defense? These rare places are currently being attacked and threatened to strip critical protection for short term gains to a few. Fortunately you own it and if you own something, chances are you want to see it, right? If you haven't seen the Giant Sequoia National Monument, then step to the front of the line! The monthly monument tours may be your ticket.

Whether a hardcore outdoors person or a first time woodsman, you own these public lands and have the right (and obligation) to protect them.If something you love is threatened, you'll probably want to fight for it. We want to help you fall in love...and fight!
