Federally protected as a National Monument since 1908, this primeval forest is both sanctuary and laboratory, revealing our relationship with the living landscape. In this digital age, we hope to provide you with what you need to not only make your visit more self-directed and meaningful, but to keep The Woods a part of your life long after you've returned home.

From here, you can explore digital media that captures historic moments in Muir Woods, both past and present. Or you may check out our informational and interpretive videos and media. Come back regularly for more, and check out our updated webcams.

Volunteer Extraordinaire Thomas Burford captured a family of river otters making their way downstream on Redwood Creek on September 2, 2013. Listen to the comments of the visitors on Bridge 1 in Muir Woods, and you might hear the river otter mama. Not much is known about river otters. If you see them, you can log in your observations at www.riverotterecologyproject.org. This will help researchers track their behavior so they can be better protected. Thanks Thomas!
