Humboldt Redwoods State Park Field Seminars



Come explore the rich cultural and natural history of Humboldt Redwoods State Park through unique, carefully planned and guided adventures which we call Field Seminars. Rediscover your relationship with the environment. Sharpen your senses and express yourself through drawing, painting and photography. Learn more about the flora and fauna that reside in and around this magical ancient forest and world class park. All that the adventure needs now is you!

Humboldt Redwoods State Park is the third largest California State Park. Located in the northwest corner of the state, its 52,000 acres are comprised of rolling hills, open prairies, steep slopes, mixed conifer and hardwood forests, babbling brooks, swift streams and the nutrient-rich alluvial flats along the Eel River where the tallest living things on earth, the coast redwoods, grow.

The average summer day temperature ranges from mid 50s to mid 80s. Fog often rolls in during the evening and stays until mid-morning. It has been known to rain during the summer.

Humboldt Redwoods Field Seminars are sponsored by Humboldt Redwoods Interpretive Association (HRIA), an educational non-profit organization dedicated toward promoting a greater appreciation of the cultural and natural history of the North Coast Redwoods District. HRIA operates the Visitor Center and Bookstore at Humboldt Redwoods and the Nature Center in Ferndale, working in cooperation with the California Department of Parks & Recreation to provide quality interpretive programs, literature and exhibits.
