We are a non-profit volunteer organization that supports the maintenance and improvement of the park. The Advocates’ activities which support this goal include: assisting State Parks in the operation and maintenance of the park; improving, maintaining and patrolling the hiking trails; and sponsoring projects in the park.
Our Guiding Vision: Is of a future where our people and all people may once again drink safely from clean and clear, flowing waters; hunt from healthy herds of elk and deer; and harvest salmon and abalone from resilient fisheries; behold and pray to a self-sustaining population of condors and eagles soaring the ridges and valleys; witness the sky darken with geese rising off our healthy lakes and wetlands; rest assured that those who have passed may rest in peace; and know their connection to land because they live connected to the land.

Join the BBVTC for a unique perspective of Big Basin, a lively and productive experience with others who share a love of these redwood forests, and the satisfaction of participating in a vital part of the park’s ability to educate and inspire the public!
