After a winter of record rainfall across the state, California's state parks are ready for some love. Spring flowers are primed to show their colorful side in a season that is sure to be extraordinary. Spring also brings Earth Day, and there are 46 state parks hosting Earth Day Restoration and Cleanup events to help revive our much-loved parks and get them ready for summer visitors.

Volunteer and Make a Difference

In the span of a few short hours, the work of dozens of individuals can transform sites in disrepair to beautiful havens for recreation. This year, now more than ever, parks truly need you.  Join us on Saturday, April 22 as we host our 19th annual Earth Day Restoration and Cleanup presented by PG&E at 46 beloved state parks.

Since 1998, the Earth Day program has provided underfunded state parks with much-needed grant funding and the volunteer muscle needed to complete long overdue maintenance and improvement projects. During that time, sponsors like PG&E and Oracle ―a 19-year partner! ―have made substantial contributions and engaged their employees in support of parks in their communities. This year, PG&E's $200,000 grant will support 10 locations in Northern and Central California, benefiting our local environment for generations to come.

At CSPF, we really think every day is Earth Day. And with your support, we do critically important work at state parks across California all year round.  State park funding has been cut many times over the past two decades, and that means many important repair and restoration projects have been left undone. Making a donation today will help take care of urgent park projects — on Earth day, and all year round!

Special thanks to our participating members, and partners The Nature Conservancy, Intel and Microsoft, for supporting this vital program.
