We all wanted to be out in Prairie Creek Redwood State Park among the luminaries this December. But to keep all our visitors, staff and volunteers safe we presented the Candlelight Walk virtually this year. The upside? We can share this experience with lovers of our redwood parks from all over the US.

Here are answers to the most common questions about this year’s event.  As we hear more, we’ll add answers.

I can't watch the event live, will there be a recording? Yes, we will send everyone registered for the event a link to the recorded version after the event.

What devices can I watch the event on? The live video event will be a Zoom Webinar. You can watch on a computer or phone. You may also be able to broadcast from a phone or computer to your TV (see below) using the link we will send you.

How can I watch this on my TV? There are several ways to broadcast the Zoom Webinar to a TV. This tutorial has a good overview of the three easiest ways. https://www.lifewire.com/cast-zoom-meeting-to-tv-5072122

What’s a “Luminary Sponsor”? If you donate $100 at Redwood Parks Conservancy as a Luminary Sponsor you will receive a “ticket” to the live event December 5th and a decal with the commemorative art for this year’s event.  NOTE: CANDLELIGHT CARE PACKAGES ARE SOLD OUT.You also will be mailed a “Candlelight Care Package” with a selection of snacks, some locally made foods from Humboldt and Del Norte Counties and a make-your-own luminary kit. Sponsors also will receive instructions on how to send a video with their redwood memories or memories of the candlelight walk. Videos will be featured on our event extras page.

How can I do more to support Prairie Creek Redwoods and all of Redwood National and State Parks? Redwood Parks Conservancy is the official non-profit partner for these parks and other local public lands. We are currently raising funds through our “Redwood Resilience” campaign to support the parks in 2021.  You can donate at https://www.redwoodparksconservancy.org/donate-rpc
