RPC Annual Fundraising 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 (Sat/Sun) 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 10 days in December, in conjunction with the annual 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!
