Park closures, service reductions and damaging development proposals threaten the integrity of California’s state park system, and the irreplaceable natural, cultural and historic resources they contain. California’s state parks are YOUR state parks, and you can help save them.
That is why we developed the Defend What’s Yours campaign. Defend What’s Yours is an effort to stop the closure of 70 state parks throughout California. In order to save our state parks, citizens need to be aware, informed and engaged.
Here are some simple things you can do to help defend what’s yours:
Visit a State Park
The best way to show support for state parks is to visit them, and be reminded about what wonderful resources they are for recreation, education and relaxation. (And pay your user fees!)
Become a Volunteer
Take ownership of your state parks by making a powerful investment of your time. As budget cuts continue, volunteers play an increasingly important role in helping to keep state parks open.
Voice your support for California’s 280 state parks by urging policymakers to enact much needed legislation that will help keep state parks open and protected. Sign up for CSPF action alerts so you can find out when extra help needed.
