"Mother of Redwood National Park"
Lucille Vinyards activism was not limited to bureaucratic meetings with the Sierra Club, Congress, and other public entities; she was often in the forest. There are many photographs of her in the Redwoods and other beautiful locations she strove to protect.
This photograph was taken as Lucille led a group down the Klamath to witness the destruction of the river caused by logging.
As a role model people sought out working with the Sierra Club and in particular Lucille Vinyard.
Letters were not just asking if they could help locally and about northern California action. Letters came from all over the world informing Lucille of global environmental disturbances.
