Northern California Forest Defender Redwood Mary, via Plight of The Redwoods Campaign , has helped to educate about the work of Earth Films and about the story of those working in courageous struggle to protect the last of the world's redwood forests. "Luna-The Story of the Stafford Giant & Julia Butterfly's Treesit", " Fire In The Eyes", and "The Timber Gap" have been featured in over one hundred screenings to community based organizations, universities and schools during The Plight of The Redwoods Campaign's 1998, 1999, 2000 & current educational tours.
