As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, the Redwood Parks Conservancy is a Cooperating Association to Redwood National and State Parks, California State Parks, and the U.S. Forest Service.

Sales at our eleven retail stores in the Parks, online sales, memberships, and special events such as the Discovery Ride, Astronomy Seminar and Candlelight Walk, generate funding for development of interpretive facilities such as visitor centers, improvement of interpretive programs and equipment, design and construction of exhibits, displays, training opportunities, and publications of informative pamphlets, park maps, and brochures.

The Redwood Park Association has recently merged with the North Coast Redwood Interpretive Association to become the new Redwood Parks Conservancy (RPC). Both associations have a long history of funding interpretive staff, events, exhibits, signage, and publications in state and federal parks and public lands on California’s north coast.

The Redwood Park Association has been in existence for twenty five years and the North Coast Redwood Interpretive Association has supported the Parks for thirty four years. As a merged organization with a combined fifty nine years of experience, the Redwood Parks Conservancy will become even stronger and offer even more support to interpretation and education for park visitors.
