Fort Ross Historic State Park: Site Captain-Song Hunter
Jenner, CA 95450
Fort Ross, one of the main tourist attractions between Bodega Bay and Fort Bragg, is a California State Historic Park showcasing a historic Russian-era fort compound that has been designated National Historic Landmark status. Located eleven miles north of Jenner on California Highway One, one of the most scenic coastal routes in the world Fort Ross is surrounded by sandy beaches, panoramic coves, and redwood forests, with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean.
Last winter the Russian River flooded, washing up trash, tires and even a hot tub on this stretch of coastline. Join Fort Ross Conservancy, California State Parks Foundation’s Park Champions, Coastwalk California Coastal Trails Association and the California Coastal Commission for California’s 35th Annual Coastal Cleanup Day!
Let’s work together to clean this up and get our beaches back into their natural pristine state.
