I worked with CSPF for a couple of years, and the people there are passionate about what they do. CSPF is a superhero when it comes to staying on top of our park's needs and doing everything they possibly can to protect them. The organization is also run so fiscally responsibly, we can trust our membership dollars are being used exactly as they should be.

As a client and volunteer I have interacted with several members of the California State Parks Foundation over the past six years. My experience with the Foundation has been without exception positive. Foundation employees are talented, dedicated and provide excellent customer service. The California State Parks Foundation maintains an excellent reputation.

I want my kids and their kids to experience the FUN and education that I have received from the State Parks. This Foundation has helped keep the fact that the State Parks Dept seems to be one of the first hits if there are budget cuts! These are not replaceable resources!! We must be the protectors!!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

keep the parks open! Keep the rangers and the staff employed and working to keep these precious resources from being cut to bare bones or less!

I used to live across the street from San Bruno Mountain. Everyday, I looked forward to hiking the trail around the mountain. This trail consisted of blackberries, views of San Francisco and beautiful fields of grass. What I enjoyed most about this experience was the ability to see the seasons change. Recreation is vital to a person's well-being. We need recreation and parks in our lives as much as we need sleep and food. This type of nourishment allows for mental/ physical well-being and growth. Without our state parks, California would lose its ability to make recreation available to the average person. We need our parks to live!
