Calaveras Big Trees State Park

Explore - Calaveras Big Trees State Park

Hi everyone! I'm Lillie and I'm inviting you to take a journey with me through an ancient grove of giant sequoia in Calaveras Big Trees State Park, live! This unique California native is full of surprises and wonder. Did I mention, they are also GIANT? As the biggest living thing on earth and one of the oldest, there is no doubt the giant sequoia's fascinating life story will delight and inspire students of all ages.
