Commemorating Julia Butterfly Hill’s Environmental Influence

November 8, 2015

Born: Feb 18, 1974
Mount Vernon, Missouri

Everyone can make a difference if even they don’t set out to. Julia Butterfly Hill is a voice in the environmental movement when she sat in a redwood for over 2 years. December 18, 1999, Julia sat in the canopy for the first time not knowing she wouldn’t set foot on the ground for 738 days. She tells her story in her iconic book, The Legacy of Luna which is second only to Silent Spring by Rachel Carson which you could read about here.  You can see purchasing information online on amazon by clicking here. Julia’s two year stay brought international attention to the plight of our dwindling ancient redwoods. She tours the world speaking about her experiences to inspire millions around the world to make a difference in their own communities.


Luna stands tall on a ridge above the town of Stafford, California. In Sanctuary Forest, a nonprofit land trust based in Humboldt Country, California monitors Luna's condition.  Because Luna sits on land that is protected under a a preservation agreement and is surrounded by Pacific Lumber property on all sides, you would have to trespass to get there. Constant foot traffic over her open roots would also increase the amount of soil erosion.

Julia Butterfly Hill’s Most Famous Quote

“All life is created in love, and thus in the depths of every human being lies a good heart. Some have lost their path from this love, so it up to us to show them the way.”
― Julia Butterfly Hill
