San Francisco: Sequoia redwood at exploratorium finds home

Posted By Xavier Cortada, Monday, November 23, 2009
June 30, 2009 letter from staff at the exploratorium

Hello Xavier et al,
I hope you're all doing well. I just wanted to give you a quick update about the sequoia redwood tree we all ceremonially planted at the end of our Climate Change Symposium in April as part of Xavier's Urban Reclamation project. It is now leading a new and happy life! 

After a cameo stint on the Exploratorium floor, our little tree had a lot of interest from local schools looking to adopt it. One Bay Area public school's eighth grade graduating class, however, wanted to present our little redwood as its class gift to the school (so we selected them to be the recipients).

I just heard from the school, where they successfully planted the tree and sent us a picture of the eighth grade graduating class with it! The e-mail from the school is below, and a picture of the 8th graders with their class gift is attached

Thanks so much to everyone who participated and, of course, most of all thanks to Xavier who brought us such a wonderful, lasting symbol of the importance of environmental discourse. 

All the best,

San Francisco, California: On behalf of the San Carlos Charter Learning Center's 8th grade graduating class, I would like to thank you for the beautiful redwood tree.

I am including a photo of our graduates with the tree!

Many thanks!
