The California Rock Art Foundation (Foundation or CRAF) is a scientific and educational organization dedicated to research, understanding, and conservation of the rock art resources created by the Native peoples of California (both Alta and Baja California).

The Foundation and its members

The Foundation is a statewide, privately developed non-profit organization 501(c)(3).

Associate membership is open to all individuals, families, and businesses who have an interest in helping to conserve rock art treasures, the heritage of Native Americans and the historic settlers in Alta and Baja California.

The Mission

Rock paintings and drawings are the oldest art in California dating from about 10,000 BC to the historic era. California has one of the largest and most diverse collections of rock paintings, drawings, portable rock art and ground figures than anywhere in the Western Hemisphere.

We invite you to consider a donation in support of our mission to discover, document, honor and protect California rock art.
