Redwood Coast Land Conservancy (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 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.”
RCLC is a Land Trust founded in 1992. We work to preserve the natural environment of coastal watersheds from the Navarro to the Russian Rivers.
We strive to provide public access for all to scenic land, and to educate the public about the natural, cultural, and historic heritage of the lands we preserve.
We envision a protected and restored coast, from the Navarro to the Russian Rivers, preserved for public enjoyment and appreciation of its natural beauty. We value preservation of wildlife diversity and abundance.
“My husband and I have been fortunate to travel to many beautiful places throughout the world but have always held a place in our hearts for the coast of northern California.”
Laurie Mueller, RCLC Director, 2002-2020
