College of the Redwoods (CR) is a public two-year community college whose main campus, comprising , is located on the southernmost edge of Eurekamarker in Humboldt County, Californiamarker. This sprawling site is spacious and distinctive in its modernist use of massive, exposed wood support beams in each structure. Situated on a man made shelf carved out of low hills, it has a commanding view of ranch land, the Humboldt Bay Wildlife Refuge, and the southern portion of Humboldt Baymarker. Many students are drawn to its natural setting, nestled into a redwood forest. Current enrollment in the Spring of 2009 is 6,774 students (at all sites in the extensive district).

Curriculum specialties

The college offers a variety of transfer, vocational, and community-based classes, including its world-famous Fine Woodworking Program started by master woodworker James Krenov, a Police Academy, Nursing and Dental Programs, Truck Driving School, ever-evolving Computer Information Sciences, Computer-Aided Drafting, and Digital Media Departments, and the new, (added in 2006), Hospitality, Restaurant and Culinary Arts Program. The college is named after the Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) trees native to the region.

Satellite campuses

CR has two satellite campuses: CR Del Norte in Crescent Citymarker, Del Norte Countymarker; and CR Mendocino Coast in Fort Braggmarker, Mendocino Countymarker. CR also has other off-campus sites, including the Arcatamarker Instructional Site, the Eureka Downtown Instructional Site, the Bianchi Farm and the Klamath-Trinity Instructional Site on the Hoopa Valley Tribe reservation.


The original Redwoods Community College District was formed in 1964 by a vote of the people of Humboldt County. In 1975, residents of the coastal portion of Mendocino County voted to join the District, and in 1978 Del Norte County similarly joined. The college serves these areas, as well as a portion of Trinity Countymarker.


Beginning with the passage of Proposition 13 by California in 1977, College of the Redwoods and most public institutions in the state have suffered declining revenue, and this has continued following the Dot-Com Bust. All of this occurs while simultaneously suffering increasing costs due to inflation, population growth, and increasingly unfunded state and federal mandates.In 2006, Humboldt County voters passed Measure Q to supply $40,000,000 funding to upgrade and renovate facilities at the main campus.
