Tribal Engagement

Tribal Engagement

We recognize the Great Redwood Trail will pass through the traditional ancestral lands of many Tribes. Tribal involvement and partnership is paramount to this and future projects within the trail corridor. We are committed to seeking and incorporating input from tribes and tribal representatives, addressing concerns, sharing how feedback has been used, and developing a plan that includes their needs, hopes, and ideas for the Great Redwood Trail.

To-date, the Great Redwood Trail Agency and our partners in the Master Planning process – the State Coastal Conservancy, North Coast Opportunities and Redwood Community Action Agency – have participated in a number of outreach and engagement activities focused on listening to Tribes (listed below). We welcome ongoing conversations with Tribes and tribal representatives. Please contact us to arrange a conversation.
