Muir Woods National Monument -- NPCA

NPCA’s Center for State of the Parks recently completed a review of Muir Woods National Monument’s cultural and natural resources. This assessment determined that natural resources are in “good” condition overall, while cultural resources are in “fair” condition. Muir Woods National Monument faces several challenges to protecting these resources, including invasive non-native plants, a lack of funds and staff, a need for cultural resource planning documents, climate change and its effects on fog and the survival of redwoods, and sudden oak death, which threatens the park’s oak and tanoak trees.
