The National Parks Service
Congress protected lands adjacent to the three California state parks in 1968 with the creation of Redwood National Park. In 1994, the California Department of Parks and Recreation and the National Park Service agreed to jointly manage the four-park area for maximum resource protection.
Today, visitors to RNSP will find not only old-growth redwood groves but open prairie lands, two major rivers, and 37 miles (60 km) of pristine California coastline. RNSP is also a testing ground for large scale forest and stream restoration of severely impacted lands.
Save the Redwoods League
Since 1918, Save the Redwoods League (STRL) has worked to protect and restore redwood forests and connect people to their peace and beauty.
STRL has pioneered innovative, science-based forest-restoration work, educated thousands of schoolchildren about the uniqueness and resilience of these wild marvels of nature, improved access to parkland, and helped create parks and reserves that have touched the lives of millions of people. Their century of puchasing and donating of old-growth forests to the state and national parks is truely a gift to the world.

Since 1977 Redwood Parks Conservancy (RPC) has upheld its mission as the official non-profit partner to our parks by working to foster understanding, enjoyment, and stewardship through education, restoration, science, research, visitor services, protection and preservation of the world's tallest trees, and support of our partners who manage your public lands.
