We Can't Do It Alone!

Redwood Parks Association is a non-profit cooperating association established to foster understanding, enjoyment and stewardship of our public lands through educational outreach, visitor services and support of our partners entrusted with the care of public lands along California's north coast. Proceeds from sales at visitor centers and our online store are returned to the parks to fund special events, exhibits, signs and publications, including this visitor guide.

While oceans contain most of Earth's carbon, about half stored on land in Redwood National and State Parks is in soils. The amount of carbon in the upper two meters of soil alone is ~14 million metric tons. That's equal to 1% of total U.S. emission in a year!
