Park Advocates: Unite!

“I think the environment should be put in the category of our national security. Defense of our resources is just as important as defense abroad. Otherwise what is there to defend?” ~Robert Redford, Yosemite National Park dedication, 1985

More than 150 park advocates from throughout California will be traveling to Sacramento on March 20 to participate in our 10th Annual Park Advocacy Day! These advocates will walk the halls of the Capitol, meet with legislators and lobby on behalf of our state parks.

If you’d like to join us on March 20 at the Capitol, please register today!  There is no cost to participate in Park Advocacy Day, but registration and participation in an online/telephone training session is required. Registration closes on February 24.

Not sure if Park Advocacy Day is for you? Maybe you just need a little convincing! Read our FAQs, or check out a recap of last year’s event (including photos).

Over the past 10 years, over 700 park supporters have joined us for this event (many returning year after year) to lobby in support of efforts to keep California’s state parks open, safe, protected and well-maintained. The work of these park advocates has helped to educate and influence policymakers as they make important decisions about California’s state park system.

Now more than ever, we all need to help defend and Save Our State Parks. Please join us!  In the words of Captain Planet, “The Power is Yours!”
