SACRAMENTO, CALIF. -- Friday, May 11, 2018 -- “We are thrilled to see a revised Governor’s budget that reflects further investments to support California’s state parks,” said Rachel Norton, Executive Director of the California State Parks Foundation. “As the statewide nonprofit enhancing and advocating for state parks, we understand the vast needs of parks and the on-going efforts necessary to ensure state parks are available for all to experience. It is especially critical we pass Proposition 68 to fund park projects, as outlined in the proposed revised budget, and work to address the unmet needs of parks.”
