We are lucky enough to live near some of California's most beautiful state parks. Just yesterday we stopped by Pt Lobos State Reserve to walk the forested trails and watch sea otters tumble in the emerald-colored water at Whaler's cove. Two weeks ago we camped at DL Bliss State Park at Lake Tahoe--an annual family-centered trip. And last month, my daughter and nephew spent a week at the Monterey State Historic Park adobes. While dressed in period costumes, they made tortillas, braided rope, branded leather and learned songs, games and dances from the early California period. These experiences enrich us and provide a much-needed respite from our highly structured, screen-focused lives. Site improvements & restoration, educational programs, and simple access to our state parks would not be possible without the California State Parks Foundation. The work of this nonprofit is more important than ever.

I've been fortunate to work with several staff members of the California State Parks Foundation. In addition, I frequently visit my local state parks and beaches. Just yesterday, I went hiking with my kids in my favorite local state park--Point Lobos. Gave me a chance once again to appreciate the important work of the dedicated professionals who make up the California State Parks Foundation. We need our state parks more than ever and the California State Parks Foundation plays a vital role in keeping our parks open and accessible. Keep up the great work!

It is a pleasure working with the California State Parks Foundation to create a stronger state parks system. They are tireless in their efforts to keep parks open and accessible for all Californians, and I am happy to play a supporting role in their work. They recently did an amazing job hosting their annual Park Advocacy Day in Sacramento - the event was extremely organized and highly effective in advocating for our parks.

At Park Advocacy Day I had the privilege of spending the day amongst fellow state park advocates, and got to watch as an assembly bill that they supported successfully passed the committeee.

I have worked with CSPF for over ten years. The individuals I have had the honor of collaborating with are dedicated and knowledgeable. They go beyond the call of duty again and again. Every one of them is a hero in my book.

I would take the state parks off the budget chopping block since they are vital to the health and well-being of every citizen of California.

I've worked with California State Parks Foundation for more than three years and am impressed by their sense of mission and the quality of their work. My work with the Foundation consisted of helping to plan and implement their annual film series. The series highlights films that were shot, at least partially, in a California state park. The staff's dedication to highlighting the state parks, informing the public about the wonders that abound in the parks and raising funds to supplement ever decreasing state funds that keep our parks open, was astounding. It is an honor to work with this group on behalf of our state park system.

The California State Parks Foundation is a "class act" non-profit. They fight to save our State Parks and make California a better place for it. Their Staff, Board and Supporters are more than admirable.

I recommend that everyone become a supporter of this wonderful organization.

The best ideas come from the California State Parks Foundation. From the Board of Directors though out the staff and volunteers CSPF has been visionary as well as boots-on-the-ground ready to be champions on behalf of our magnificent State Parks.

I am proud to support the California State Parks Foundation and to call myself a partner in their critical work to keep parks safe and accessible for everyone. As a CSPF Earth Day volunteer and Parks Advocacy Day participant, I have also seen firsthand how the Foundation's programs directly benefit the parks and engage the community. CSPF has demonstrated again and again that they can make real, positive change happen -- for our parks, and the people who enjoy them!
