Press release from the Redwood Parks Conservancy:

Redwood Parks Conservancy logoRedwood Parks Conservancy (RPC), the National Park Service and California State Parks invite folks of all ages to join the crew of volunteer interpreters and monitors, known as the Titaneers, for the upcoming spring and summer seasons in the majestic Grove of Titans and Fern Canyon in Redwood National & State Parks! Join RPC for a series of introductory hikes (March 30th & April 13th in the Grove of Titans, & April 7th in Fern Canyon, 1pm-3pm) to learn more about the program and enjoy a lovely afternoon out in the forest with the Titaneers!

Anyone who has a passion for the redwoods, enjoys spending time in one of Earth’s most beautiful places, and wants to protect and preserve these trees for generations to come—we invite you to become a Titaneer!

About the Titaneers:

Located near Crescent City, CA, the Grove of Titans is home to a towering grove of ancient coastal redwoods that include some of the world’s tallest trees. Officially opened to the public in May of 2022, the Grove of Titans features a raised walkway that allows visitors to experience this incredible section of forest while protecting the delicate understory and shallow root system that had been damaged by years of off-trail activity.

The Titaneers, an all-ages group of volunteer interpreters and monitors, were assembled to play a critical role in the continued preservation of the grove’s delicate ecosystem by keeping visitors on the trail, providing important information on trail conditions, preventing vandalism, and so much more. Last season the Titaneers logged 1,000+ hours out on the trail, personally interacting with over 6,000 visitors!

The Titaneers program is now expanding to cover the unique and magnificent Fern Canyon. As the number of visitors to our parks continues to grow each year, it is important to maintain a presence on these high-traffic trails and to educate visitors about the impact they have on their environment.
