Promoting Preservation through Education and Stewardship in Russian River and Sonoma Coast State Parks
Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods (Stewards) is a non-profit organization that partners with the Russian River Sector of California State Parks. The sector includes Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve (outside Guerneville), Austin Creek State Recreation Area, Sonoma Coast State Park (from Bodega Bay to Jenner) and includes the Willow Creek watershed. The State Parks Volunteers in Parks program depends on Stewards to provide funding for educational and interpretive activities, for resource management projects, and to assist in the development of interpretive facilities.
Supports over 350 State Park volunteers who provide public education programs, stewardship crews, environmental education programs for school groups, and staffing for visitor centers. Programs take place at Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve, Austin Creek State Recreation Area and Sonoma Coast State Park.
Stewards also raises grant funds for habitat restoration projects. Current projects include salmonid restoration in the Fife and Willow Creek watersheds.
