Friends of the Lost Coast


Friends of the Lost Coast

Our mission is to inspire a passion for understanding and preserving the natural life of the Lost Coast region in students, visitors and the community. Sharing this passion is what our programs are all about as we work toward our vision of a time when our local and global communities understand, value and appreciate the unique environment of the Lost Coast region and reflect this in their personal lives.

We offer a natural science curriculum to local schools and youth interns, and we run Summer Adventure Camp - a day camp for kids ages 4 - 13.  We are developing a native plant garden and outdoor classroom and are raising awareness about the impact of invasive plants in our communities.  FOLC also offers workshops, lectures, and hikes.  Funding for our programs comes from grants, fundraisers and donations from people like you!

LCIA is a member of the King Range Alliance, in partnership with the BLM King Range National Conservation Area.
