Why Donate to RPC?

Redwood Parks Conservancy (RPC), a local non-profit, (Federal Tax ID 68-0084901)  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 Park, California 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 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 RPA further our goals of resource protection, education and visitor services.

Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park Visitor Center

Help Restore Prairie Creek Redwoods Visitor Center

The building in which Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park visitor center is located was built in the 1930s and used for the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). This beautiful old historic structure has suffered from deferred maintenance, and Redwood Parks Conservancy is working with California State Parks to find the funds to renovate the building. To start that much-needed renovation, the visitor center will be open in a very limited way from mid-March to late April as the electrical and heating systems are brought to modern standards. Join Redwood Parks Association in support of work in this historic building which will include bringing the original wooden floors back to original brilliance, design, construction and installation of compelling educational interpretive displays about the CCC years and about our coastal redwood region, and many other projects designed to protect the building and allow it to serve our visitors for decades to come. Your donation in support of this renovation is tax deductible and you will receive a letter and updates on how the renovation is moving along. Together we can improve and protect this beautiful building. Help us raise the much needed funds to make this restoration complete! We need to raise $250,000. Won't you help us please?
