Assemblymember Jim Wood

Last week, Assemblymember Jim Wood (D-Santa Rosa) announced he selected Laura Perrott Mahan, early 20th century advocate for the preservation of redwood groves in Humboldt County and California, as 2022 Woman of the Year for Assembly District 2.

“This is very unique, and maybe the only time ever, that a Woman of the Year has been chosen as someone from history, more than 100 years ago,” said Wood. “I was inspired to choose Ms. Mahan after hearing from John “Griff” Griffiths, an interpreter at Humboldt Redwoods State Park, during a tour of the park late last year. We stopped at her memorial and Griff, a masterful storyteller, shared her story and I knew immediately that she deserved to be honored for her advocacy and work.”
