Discussing Diversity in Our Wild Spaces

Over the course of a 4-day camping trip this past May in Yosemite National Park, CSPF participated in a Muir Campfire Discussion entitled “Diversity and Relevancy.” It was a gathering of inspiring people from nonprofits, government agencies and individuals involved in the movement to encourage more people of color to visit and seek careers in the outdoors. Please watch this video to learn more and to hear from some of the participants.

From the Director:

In May I was lucky enough to be invited to document an amazing event in Yosemite National Park. It was a campfire discussion on improving the diversity of both the visitation and the employment within our parks and wild spaces. It was a gathering of extraordinary people from non profit agencies, land management bureaus and other people involved in the movement to encourage more people of color to visit and seek careers in the outdoors. If you love our National Parks and other wild spaces please share this with others, as it really is one of the most important issues facing the conservation movement and outdoor recreation. Thanks for watching.

Construction Update

We are excited about the progress happening at LA State Historic Park!

IMG_1451Residual storm clouds on Monday make a nice backdrop for the new roundhouse bridge which will be a central feature of the new park. And happily, after clearing some construction hurdles and delays due to nesting birds and archaeological finds, construction has picked up steam in recent days. We are on track to have the park finished in December and look forward to an official grand opening in spring of 2016. Stay tuned, we’ll be posting more photos as the welcome center and ranger station near completion and the park takes on its final form.
