The parks awarded these grants are:

  • China Camp State Park
  • Sinkyone Wilderness State Park
  • Mendocino Woodlands State Park
  • Plumas Eureka State Park
  • Candlestick Point State Recreation Area

LOOKING BACK AT EARTH DAY 2017

Our 2017 Earth Day Restoration and Cleanup provided an opportunity for all of us to do something meaningful for our planet by giving back to the state parks in our communities. Across California, more than 3,000 volunteers helped restore and clean up 40 state parks, in partnership with nearly 30 park nonprofits and community organizations.

Over 19 years, more than 85,000 participants have given more than 350,000 hours to build bridges, split rail fences and boardwalks; conduct river, lake and beach cleanups; restore trails and habitats with native plants; and install recycling bins and irrigation systems.
