Made with Padlet

We all wanted to be out in Prairie Creek Redwood State Park among the luminaries this December. But to keep all our visitors, staff and volunteers safe we presented the Candlelight Walk virtually this year. The upside? We can share this experience with lovers of our redwood parks from all over the US.



Things to Know

Here are answers to the most common questions about this year’s event.  As we hear more, we’ll add answers.

What do I do if I have questions? Email us at [email protected] Maggie or David will help you.

When? Saturday December 11, 2021 6:00 p.m. PST

How long is the event? About an hour and fifteen minutes

Will there be a recorded version? Yes, we'll send a link to the recorded version to all participants after the live event is complete. The recording will be ready in about a day after the live event.

What can we watch with/on? You can watch on a computer/laptop or smart phone. If you have high bandwidth internet, you may try casting the Zoom event to your TV. This is easier with a newer TV or a device like a ROKU, Apple TV or Chromecast. There is a tutorial HERE.

Are there posters, magnets and pins? Posters with the Candlelight Walk logo as well as pins and stickers are available in the RPC Store.  All proceeds support Redwood National and State Parks.

What else can I do to Support Redwood Parks? Take part in the Candlelight Walk Auction on Facebook. Check out our Projects Page and consider Donating or Leaving a Legacy to help us do more. 


How can I do more to support Prairie Creek Redwoods and all of Redwood National and State Parks? Redwood Parks Conservancy is the official non-profit partner for these parks and other local public lands. We are currently raising funds through our “Redwood Resilience” campaign to support the parks in 2021.  You can donate at https://www.redwoodparksconservancy.org/donate-rpc
