Redwood Parks Conservancy (RPC) is the non-profit partner for your public lands along the North Coast. We were established to foster understanding, enjoyment, and stewardship of your public lands through educational outreach, visitor services, and support of our partners entrusted with the care of these wonderous public lands.
A message from the Executive Director: Smith River National Recreation Area (SRNRA) has a wonderful visitor center reminiscent of Forest Service ranger stations of the last century. Don't let the rustic ambiance fool you, though. The folks who will greet you there know all about the SRNRA and local redwood parks and can set you up with permits and information. Find them in Gasquet, or call them at 707-457-3251.
Donate to RPC and the Redwood Coast
Redwood Parks Conservancy (RPC) has become a strong voice for parks and public lands on California’s north coast in assisting in the protection of the Redwood forest and helping visitors create memories that will last a lifetime.
In 2015, RPC donated over $500,000 in funds and operations assistance to our partners: Redwood National Park, California State Parks the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management. RPC is now in partnership with Headwaters Forest Reserve in an outreach effort to let everyone know the wonders of Headwaters and the importance of protecting this magnificent old-growth Redwood forest.
Did you know that many of the visitor centers within our partnership are operated solely by RPC and would be closed without our commitment to keep them operational?
Donations from people like you allow us to continue providing visitor services, educational programs and materials and important projects within the parks. To help us continue our mission, please donate now and help RPC further our goals of resource protection, education and visitor services.
