In Support of the Redwood Coast

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 our Executive Director

"Campground Full"

Summer in the redwood forest starts early for those of us who look forward to greeting our international visitors to our parks. Weeks ago the hiring process was completed for summer seasonal employees and for the last two weeks the eager and excited folks who were selected have been filling their minds with information to answer the questions from puzzled guests. Ask our employees: about tsunami, endangered species protection, the geology of our coastal parks, our wild elk herds, pre-European human culture here, where are pet friendly hikes, which trail is a good choice for a disabled visitor, where's the drive through tree, why are the coastal redwoods so tall, when will it be sunny? Redwood Parks Conservancy employees train along with Redwood National and State Parks employees so we can provide you with orientation and information appropriate for your visit. Remember to make your campground reservations before you come to see us, because already you'll see those signs early in the day: campground full.

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 ParkCalifornia 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.
