Armstrong Redwoods Tour Guide
Knowledgeable volunteers are available to lead nature walks through the park for small or large groups. Available walks include: forest ecology, wildflower and historical hikes in Austin Creek State Recreation Area. Early reservations are required as tour times are limited, especially for school groups.

Armstrong Redwoods Visitor Center
The visitor center at Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve and Austin Creek State Recreation Area was started by volunteers John and Pauline Gilbert, and funded by Stewards in 1986. In the beginning this center was housed in a small room at the Ranger's station. In 1990 volunteers saw their dream of a separate visitor center become a reality. The center is open year-round, seven days a week.

Jenner Visitor's Center
The Sonoma Coast Visitor Center in Jenner, previously called the Jenner Boathouse, was operated by the Jenner Community Club for many years. In 1996 the community asked Stewards to take over the staffing of the JVC, which is situated on the Russian River estuary in the heart of Jenner. It is operated by State Park volunteers and open mostly on weekends.

Tidepool Naturalists
During spring and summer on low tides, volunteer roving naturalists are available at Shell Beach to provide park visitors with an educational experience exploring the intertidal zone. Learn about the amazing plants and animals that inhabit this magical ecosystem.
