The community is cordially invited to join Sanctuary Forest on Saturday, September 15 to witness and participate in the Naming Ceremony. The Naming Ceremony is an annual ritual held each fall within the ancient redwood forest sanctuary of the Mattole River headwaters. This candlelight ceremony—which features poetry and music—will begin around dusk, with refreshments served afterwards. The names of all those who have been memorialized and honored during the year, as well as all of our donors, will be read aloud during the ritual. Those recognized at this ceremony will reflect all donations received by August 31st.
Please call Sanctuary Forest at (707) 986-1087, ext. 9# if you would like to attend this very special ceremony. RSVP by September 10th is requested.
