RPC Annual Events

Redwood Parks Conservancy (RPC) holds two annual fundraising events at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park each year--Run in the Redwoods 5k (first Saturday in October) and Candlelight Walk through the Ancient Redwoods (first weekend in December). Registration/tickets will be available on our website as we get closer to the events.

In addition, RPC has a fabulous Online Auction, held nationwide for one week in December, in conjunction with the Candlelight Walk.

All events support parks and public lands along California's far north coast. Be part of these special events through sponsorship or by attending!

Please note that events sponsored by RPC may have photographs taken by staff and/or professional photographers. By purchasing tickets and/or attending events you are agreeing to be photographed. Photos may be used in print and digital formats by RPC and its agency partners.
