Redwood Coast Land Conservancy (RCLC) is a land trust founded in 1992 and is a 501(c)3 California non-profit.
RCLC covers the coastal region of southern Mendocino County and northern Sonoma County in northern California. It’s a place of scenic beauty and unique wildlife. This land contains some of the rarest and most varied habitats found on earth. It’s part of the California Floristic Province, named by scientists as one of earth’s 25 conservation “hot spots.”
We work to preserve the natural environment of coastal watersheds from the Navarro to the Russian Rivers. We provide public access to scenic land and educate the public regarding the value of our natural heritage.
Our non-profit organization has a volunteer board of directors. RCLC also has many active community volunteers who work on projects from public outreach and social media campaigns to fundraising and property maintenance. The community actively supports environmental preservation.
