CSPF’s Park Champions Program holds volunteer work days in state parks across California. This program was created in response to the budget cuts that California state parks have faced over the past few years. In partnership with California Department of Parks and Recreation, Park Champions provides consistent, sustainable volunteer support in the areas of park maintenance and beautification.
In 1998, the CSPF developed its Earth Day Restoration and Cleanup program to engage Californians of all ages and demographics in environmental improvement projects in their communities. It is also an opportunity to educate people about behaviors that will help sustain our planet for future generations. Statewide, thousands of volunteers plant trees, restore trails and wildlife habitat, and clean up beaches and park lands. Millions of others learn about simple things that can be done every day to protect our precious natural resources.
