Celebrate Mother’s Day in the park by honoring the spirited women who lived in, worked in, and fought for Big Basin throughout its history. Living history reenactments bring you back in time where you will meet pioneer homemaker Alice Maddock, Josephine McCrackin, the “Savior of the Redwoods,” and Harriet “Petey” Weaver, the first female ranger. Interpreter Susan Blake portrays these inspiring women on this half-mile, one-hour living history walk through the magnificent redwoods. Meet at park headquarters.

This walk is wheelchair and stroller accessible. Free event. Vehicle day-use fee is $10. For more information, please call (831) 338-8883.
