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

We are experiencing the full, lush wonder of summer in the redwoods. The drive down Newton Drury Parkway at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park shows tiger lilies speckling some sunny banks and visitors from all over the world leisurely exploring the park's myriad of trails. If you, like me, enjoy the diversity at Prairie Creek - the prairie and the old-growth forest byways - then you should consider registering for our annual 5k event on September 15. The parkway will be closed to vehicles that day and you can join runners, walkers, walkers pushing strollers, and amblers to help us raise funds for Redwood Parks Conservancy and experience the beauty of the place with others who feel the same way you do about our World Heritage parks. Redwood Parks Conservancy is not a huge nonprofit supporting many - instead we are a small nonprofit dedicated to our redwood parks and the needs which cannot be met by the budgets of our public land partners. Here's a fun opportunity to have a part in supporting our parks. Come join us on September 15.

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 2017, RPC donated over $600,000 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.
