Friends of the Lost Coast

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Join Friends of the Lost Coast (FOLC) for our Native Plant Garden Volunteer Work Parties, on the 1st Thursday and the 3rd Sunday of each month from 10am to 1pm!
Thanks to the rain, things are greening up at the Lost Coast Native Plant Garden! There is plenty for volunteers to do: potting up wildflower seedlings, weeding, planting, working on Hugulkultur beds, and expanding the nursery area. Tools provided. Bring drinking water, a snack and your mask! There is no service on site, please contact us prior to the workdays if you need further directions.

If you have any special interests or talents in the garden, we would love to hear about them! Contact us at!

With its historic barns, native plant garden and trail to a nearby salmon bearing creek, the Lost Coast Education Center is a perfect place for students of all ages to engage in the natural world, learn about sustainable gardening practices, water conservation and the benefits of mimicking nature in their own landscapes. Volunteers are the driving force in developing the garden, enthusiastically giving to the project to help secure a future in which our local gardens and the larger planetary garden can thrive. The garden features an outdoor classroom for workshops and school field trips and a nursery where people can purchase plants for their own gardens. Interpretive signs and an indoor classroom inside the barns are planned for the near future. The Lost Coast Education Center is located on the BLM service road next to the Whitethorn BLM office on Shelter Cove and is a project in partnership with the King Range National Conservation Area.

Mission Statement

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.


Founded by a group of community-minded nature lovers in 2000, Friends of the Lost Coast originally partnered with staff at the King Range National Conservation Area to bring interpretive information about the local Lost Coast region Conservation Lands to the public. Early projects included natural science fairs and the movie, Lost Coast Adventures, which teaches safety and stewardship to visitors. Since then we have grown to include many more partners and great programs.
