A Unique Partnership: Redwood World Heritage Site and Affiliated Tribes
23 February 2023, 1 pm EDT / 10 AM PDT
Inscribed as a World Heritage Site in 1980, Redwood National and State Parks preserve the largest remaining contiguous ancient coast redwood forest in the world. Redwood is unique among U.S. World Heritage Sites in its combination of national and state park leadership. Now, thanks to an initiative on the part of the U.S. National Park Service (NPS) and California State Parks (CSP), the site is also including culturally affiliated tribes in decision making. Join Steven Mietz, NPS Redwood Park Superintendent, Victor Bjelejac, CSP North Coast Redwoods District Superintendent, and tribal representatives to learn about the outstanding universal value and ongoing restoration of the parks. Karin Grantham and Leonel Arguello will also join us for the Q&A portion of the webinar.
Register here to attend. This webinar is free/contribution optional. Our moderator will be World Heritage USA Vice Chair Destry Jarvis.
