WASHINGTON — Redwood National Park was established in 1968 to save some of the remaining old growth stands of redwoods that were in jeopardy.
The new park joined with Del Norte Coast, Jedediah Smith, and Prairie Creek Redwoods State Parks, which had been in existence since the1920s, to form a more contiguous forest.
The parks are managed jointly by the National Park Service and the California Dept. of Parks.
