Lady Bird Johnson Grove Dedication
In August 1967 President Richard Nixon, former President Lyndon B. Johnson and his wife Lady Bird Johnson came to Humboldt County to dedicate Lady Bird Johnson Grove. This dedication was a result of the passing of a bill to establish a Redwood National Park.
President Nixon begins his address like this,
"It is fitting that a magnificent redwood grove in Redwood National Park be dedicated in honor of Lady Bird Johnson, who has done so much to stir in the American conscience a deepened sense of unity with our national environment. Mrs. Johnson has given generously of her time and talents on behalf of the natural beauty of the land she loves so well. That beauty is uniquely expressed in the Redwood National Park established by the Act of Congress of October 2, 1968, while Mrs. Johnson was First Lady of the land."
