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 at 6:00 p.m. and end by 7:30, 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 between September 17, 2017 and August 31st, 2018.
