Redwood Coast Land Conservancy

The Redwood Coast Land Conservancy (RCLC) works to preserve for future generations the natural environment and sustainable land use of coastal watersheds from the Navarro to the Russian Rivers, to provide public access to scenic land, and to educate the public regarding the value of our natural heritage.

We envision a protected and restored coast, from the Navarro to the Russian Rivers, preserved for public enjoyment and appreciation of its natural beauty, abundant diversity of wildlife, and rich cultural history.

The Redwood Coast of southern Mendocino County and northern Sonoma County is a place of exquisite beauty and natural solitude.

Green forests of pine, fir and redwood, revealed by the silent ebb and flow of coastal fog, extend down to the vast Pacific Ocean. Wild rhododendrons, azaleas and iris surprise and delight the observer with their colorful displays. Rocky bluffs give way to the ocean's powerful surf. Spectacular vistas of wind-swept meadows and tree-covered ridges greet the eye at every turn.

Wildlife abounds in this still sparsely developed region. The fleeting glimpse of a river otter or osprey, the seasonal sighting of a newborn seal or wintering Tundra Swan, all reaffirm this land's natural heritage.

Rivers of the north coast -- the Navarro, Garcia, Gualala and Russian -- grace this magnificent landscape. Many ribbons of smaller streams and creeks tumble down the hillsides. These riparian corridors, home to the endangered Coho salmon and Steelhead trout, provide that most precious resource of all, water.
