California State Parks Foundation is a member-supported nonprofit dedicated
to protecting, improving and advocating for all of California’s state parks.
Great News for Parks!
The people of California have spoken and we have chosen to protect our parks! From increased funding to protecting wildlife, Californians are expressing their appreciation for these treasured places.
Thanks for helping us create a new #GreenFriday tradition to share with family and friends. Tag your posts and photos on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the #GreenFriday and #CAStateParks hashtags. We’d love to hear from you!
