Most visitors know Redwood National and State Parks as home to the world's tallest trees—icons that inspire visions of mist-laden primeval forests bordering crystal-clear streams. But the parks also protect vast prairies, oak woodlands, and nearly 40 miles of wild coastline, all of which support a rich mosaic of wildlife diversity and cultural traditions. Indeed, more than parks, Redwood is also designated a World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve. Join park rangers from the National Park Service and California State Parks as we explore this special place.
