CALIFORNIA STATE PARKS FOUNDATION
April 28, 2010
My first outing when I came to CA 35 years ago was to a state park; I find you can tell a lot about a place by how the parks integrate and support the rest of the community. Now at 60 I loo back having grown my kids camping weekends, hikes, and these include many holidays.. and am so grateful for this resource. I daily visit a locak park to walk and when the world is stressful, find peace and hope in the parks; the staff I have encountered are helpful and informative and inspiring. Is more than places to go, our parks are a place of possibility.. I now find myself reading and taking classes so I can become more knowledgable and a GOAL is to docent when I retire in 2 years.. With the mess this state has gotten into-- the PARKS are something we can TRULY be PROUD of and to which are attracted folks from all over the world! Preserve, Enrich, Cherish, and Support these unique resources.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Happy to be there! Wanted to share their info with us, and inspired us to seek additional info after we left! Our staff included "kids" maybe 18-20.. t was inspirational seeing our future generation so passionate about the parks and natural resources..
