Redwood National Park The coast of the Redwood National Park protects some of the world’s largest forests and adjacent prairies. It consists of protected oak woodlands, coastal areas and the marine environment. This ecosystem is essential for the existence of other factors such as tourism and even animal inhabitation. Some historical details are discussed in this essay, but as a concern, Yurok, Chilula and Tolowa tribes had historically occupied lands that are now included in the park, (Redwood National Park’s Guide, p1). The diverse traditions and culture of the indigenous people are still practised today, making the park frequently visited. In May 1994, California States Park and National Park agreed to collaboratively manage their bordering redwood parklands. This is what brought Redwood National Park into existence. This park manages about 133,000 acres that are used to preserve and protect the forest and also provide the enjoyment to the people through education and inspiration, (National or State Park, 2010). The Redwood National Park is one of the old-growth temperate forests that are located in the United States of America. It is located along the coast of northern California and it comprises of Jedidiah Smith, Del Norte Coast and Prairie Creek Redwood State Parks. The park is entirely located within the Humboldt and Del Norte Countries. It protects 45% of the remaining coastal redwood. One of the redwood species is Sequoia sempervirens. The park preserves and protects old growth forest that adds up to about 38,900 acres.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
