Help Protect Redwoods Forests

Who doesn’t love getting out into nature and helping restore forests to thrive? Caring for our lands is a big task and we know that our community welcomes opportunities to help. Our volunteer needs are diverse, from assisting staff with administrative support to helping with special events to participating in field projects. We hold annual events—both on properties we own and those we have transferred to California State Parks—that include removing invasive species, rebuilding trails, counting birds, and other activities.

Please email us at [email protected] or use our online contact form to let us know your availability, talents, and volunteer interests. We look forward to hearing from you! You can also help us by becoming a volunteer Redwood Ambassador.

Upcoming Events

No Current Events Scheduled

Although precautions and restrictions due to COVID-19 and damage from the 2020 CZU Lightening Complex Fires currently prevent us from visiting in person and from visiting certain parks and forests, we are delighted to invite you to join us in the forest virtually. Delve into the beauty, history, science, and benefits of our magnificent redwood forests with Under the Redwoods: a Sempervirens Fund webinar series.
