After you flip the daily blab to page 12 column 3 down at the bottom, next to the furniture ad, you might have read about California’s State Park crises. Yup. Our Governator’s replacement, “Governor Moonbeam” is looking to cut funding from the State Park System. Most of yall are in the Golden State and spend a lot of time trekking thru the forest. The California State Park Foundation is our advocate for saving the parks. But what can you do? Surely there will be others who will save the parks – and I have no time. OK, so you aren’t faced with the guilt of watching the gates close, you can invest a few hours of your time to make a difference.

    On Tuesday, March 22, over 150 park supporters are heading to Sacramento to lobby support from our elected reps. The event is called Park Advocacy Day.  If you are able, you’re invited to take the day off and join the party. To learn more, click <HERE>. At least send a letter. The website has a template.
