The mission of the Friends of the Lost Coast is to inspire a passion for understanding and preserving the natural life of the Lost Coast in students, visitors and the community. The organization offers a natural science curriculum to schools and youth interns, and provides articles, lectures and hikes. The Lost Coast Education Center will soon open at the King Range National Conservation Area office, where workshops will be conducted and a native plant garden will be built. The organization serves as a Friends Group to the King Range National Conservation Area and works closely with partner organizations in the community.
