The '''Redwood National and State Parks''' ('''RNSP''') are located in the [[United States]], along the coast of northern [[California]]. Comprising Redwood National Park (established 1968) and California's [[Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park|Del Norte Coast]], [[Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park|Jedediah Smith]], and [[Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park]]s (dating from the 1920s), the combined RNSP contain {{convert|133,000|acre|km2}}.<ref name="2010 Visitor Guide">{{cite web |title=National or State Park? |work=Redwood National and State Parks Visitor Guide |publisher=National Park Service |date=June 24, 2010 |url=https://pwrcms.nps.gov/redw/photosmultimedia/upload/VG_REDW_LOWRES_6.9.10.pdf |accessdate=2010-06-24}}</ref> Located entirely within [[Del Norte County, California|Del Norte]] and [[Humboldt County, California|Humboldt Counties]], the four parks, together, protect 45% of all remaining [[Sequoia sempervirens|coast redwood]] (''Sequoia sempervirens'') old-growth forests, totaling at least {{convert|38982|acre|km2}}.

In 1850, [[Old-growth forest|old-growth]] redwood forest covered more than {{convert|2000000|acre|km2}} of the California coast. The northern portion of that area, originally inhabited by [[Native Americans in the United States|Native Americans]], attracted many lumbermen and others turned gold miners when a minor [[gold rush]] brought them to the region. Failing in efforts to strike it rich in gold, these men turned toward harvesting the giant trees<ref name="Coy">{{cite book |last=Coy |first=Owen Cochran |title=The Humboldt Bay Region 1850-1875 |publisher=Humboldt County Historical Society |year=1982 |pages=51}}</ref> for booming development in [[San Francisco]] and other places on the West Coast. After many decades of unrestricted [[Clearcutting|clear-cut logging]], serious efforts toward conservation began. By the 1920s the work of the [[Save-the-Redwoods League]], founded in 1918 to preserve remaining old-growth redwoods, resulted in the establishment of [[Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park|Prairie Creek]], [[Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park|Del Norte Coast]], and [[Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park]]s among others. Redwood National Park was created in 1968, by which time nearly 90% of the original redwood trees had been logged. The [[National Park Service]] (NPS) and the [[California Department of Parks and Recreation]] (CDPR) administratively combined Redwood National Park with the three abutting Redwood State Parks in 1994 for the purpose of cooperative forest management and stabilization of forests and watersheds as a single unit.<ref>{{cite web|title=Working Together|url=http://www.nps.gov/redw/planyourvisit/park-overview.htm|work=Redwood National and State Parks|publisher=National Park Service|accessdate=2 April 2012}}</ref>
