The California State Parks Foundation has been THE key organization in leading the fight to protect California State Parks. I've worked with them closely in the efforts to keep China Camp State Park open after it was threatened with permanent closure back in 2011. They were instrumental in spreading the word about the closure that affected 70 parks all across the state. They organize an annual Park Advocacy Day in Sacramento, in which park supporters get to play a direct role in our democracy, lobbying legislators on issues related to our state parks. They also have a great volunteer program called Park Champions.

I am proud to be a part of this organization and its dedicated staff and volunteers, all doing their part to promote and protect our beautiful state park system. In these times of budget cuts it is heartening to see leadership from a nonprofit that supports the hard work of the Department of Parks & Rec. Yay California State Parks Foundation -- you rock!
