Unesco’s main objective in this heritage site is to bring into focus the coastal redwoods(Sequoia sempervirens) trees which scholars claim to have existed for 160 millions years. The heritage site comprises a region of coastal mountains bordering the Pacific Ocean equidistant from San Fransisco(560 miles), California and Portland, Oregon. Uesco says, ‘Several of the world’s tallest known trees grow within the property…’. The Redwood National Park headquarters is located in Crescent City, California, with a service office located in Arcata and an operations centre located in Orick, California.
Modern day social groups like Yurok, Tolowa, Karok, Chilula and Wivot all have long historical relationship with the heritage site region, and some Native American groups still live in the park, today.
