As part of its ongoing community outreach program, the Redwood Parks Lodge Company today announced that it will host a series of general information presentations in cities throughout Humboldt County starting at the end of October and continuing into November.

With the first phase of its development efforts nearly completed, Redwood Parks Lodge Company will hold a series of meetings in town halls, community centers, lodges and restaurants throughout the Northern California Redwood region. During these meetings, the company will outline its current and future developmental plans and vision for becoming the leading lodging, hospitality and entertainment company serving outdoor lovers, vacationers and travelers visiting the Redwood National and State Parks and the surrounding area.

“We have been working very hard for almost seven years,” said John “Johnny Redwood” Russavage, the company’s founder and spokesperson. “We have reached the point where we have some very exciting things to share with the residents of Humboldt County and tourists from around the world.”

Starting in Orick and working its way south towards Fortuna, California, the company will hold one-hour presentations hosted by local actress Haley Becksted. Becksted, who now works for Redwood Adventures Entertainment, a division of the Redwood Parks Lodge Company, has starred in several local feature length productions and commercials. She also had a role in “The Majestic,” a major motion picture featuring Jim Carrey filmed in the Northern California city of Ferndale.

The presentation will include segments on the history and legends of the Redwood National and State Park, information about the company’s newly completed Redwood Adventure Village and recently launched Redwood Adventures Tours, which offers guided tour to visitors of the Park. The presentations will conclude with a preview showing of some of the company’s film work produced by Emmy award winner, Dave Lasko.

Those attending the presentations will have a chance to win a free, one-night stay at the company’s Elk Meadow Cabins at Redwood Adventures Village or a free deluxe guided tour of Redwood National and State parks provided by Redwood Adventures Tours.
