Bring them with you to the “Old Growth, New Adventures”, Sequoia Park Re-envisioning Community Workshop & Free BBQ on Saturday, Oct 21, 2017 from 12:30 to 3:00 where they can share their ideas, especially since they’ll be using Sequoia Park for years to come!

Why do we want kids and young adults to participate?

  • They are a vital and contributing community resource.
