Upcoming Events & Programs
Wildland Fire Update (9/17/20):
Both Armstrong Redwoods SNR and Austin Creek SRA will be closed until sometime in 2021. We hope parts of Armstrong might be opened to docent guided fire walks in late spring but this timeframe is not confirmed. Please sign up to receive our enewsletter (at the top of webpage) to learn how you can volunteer for restoration activities in the months ahead.
Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve started burning on the forest floor on the afternoon of 8/24/20. The fire slowly burned through
the grove and did not affect structures or iconic trees. State Parks, CalFire, and local firefighters worked together to make the best possible
decisions with respect to managing the fire for the park and the local community.
We thank them for their expertise and dedication.
Both Parks will be closed until further notice. See superintendent's order. We really need the public to stay away at this time. Volunteer help and support will be needed after assessments are done and hazardous trees are removed. Right now we really need financial resources as ALL revenue generated at Armstrong Redwoods for Stewards' work has stopped (day-use fees, camping fees, visitor center sales).
A SPECIAL FUND HAS BEEN SET UP FOR FIRE RECOVERY DONATIONS
While fires help forests to Renew • Revive • Regenerate,
Stewards needs YOUR HELP to welcome you back safely into your STATE PARKS!
Thank you so very much for your support!
