Plan to Save Austin Creek

Austin Creek State Recreation Area is comprised of 5,683 acres of oak woodlands, redwood forest, the headwaters of East Austin Creek, Fife Creek and Gilliam Creek. Elevations within the park range from 150 feet above sea level to almost 1,900 feet on Marble Mine Ridge.

The park includes twenty miles of hiking trails, two backcountry camp sites and Bull Frog Pond campground with twenty-four sites. The area is popular with equestrians, hikers and bicylists (on service roads). Wildflower displays  are incredible during the spring and the area is prolific with a diversity of native plants and wildlife.

In addition, Austin Creek’s historic Pond Farm Pottery was the home, workshop, and school of the internationally renowned ceramic artist, Marguerite Wildenhain. Don't miss a chance to tour Pond Farm with Laura Parent on Satuday, May 28th (register online).

Without people out and about in this park it could fall prey to more pot growing operations, threats of fire, and vandalism.

Plan to Keep Austin Creek Open - First Steps

  • Recruit and train volunteers to patrol by foot, horseback, and bike. Interested?  Email
  • In less then a week we  already have people who have stepped up to be Volunteer Coordinators for our patrol efforts.
  • Raise money to purchase a small trailer for Bull Frog Pond campground to be used by a camphost. A donation of a small-sized trailer in good condition would be fabulous!
  • Support ongoing stewardship efforts by the Armstrong Redwoods/Austin Creek  Trail Crew that meets the 2nd Wednesday of the month.
  • Garner  support for our efforts through our special events this summer. Volunteers are need to staff our events (see below).
  • Create specific public relations strategies locally and engage businesses and resorts.
  • Look at the feasibility of entering into an operating agreement as soon as AB 42 is passed into law.
  • Solicit sponsors and DONATIONS to support these efforts.

Your support is needed - Thank you very much!
