Over the past 15 years, more than 1,000 individuals have participated in Park Advocacy Day, helping to send a powerful message to policymakers that California’s 280 state parks must be a state priority.
The need for strong advocates for California’s state park system continues. This year we will be focusing our lobbying power at Park Advocacy Day on increasing access to California’s state parks.
We know that state parks provide very real health, wellness and recreational benefits. We also know that in order to provide increased access to state parks for all California residents, we need to increase our efforts to break down barriers such as lack of public transportation, the prohibitive costs of overnight coastal accommodations and the need for affordable parking.
Join CSPF and park supporters from throughout California on June 20th, and make your voice heard on these important issues. Together, we can work to make sure that all Californians have the ability to receive the benefits that come with visiting state parks.

We cultivate stewardship of state parks by hosting and funding a range of volunteer and educational programs aimed to support state parks.
We work to ensure that state parks in significant need of repair or restoration are taken care of, both from volunteer programs and capital campaigns.
We give direct support to state parks by offering a series of competitive grants to state park units, qualified nonprofits, government entities, and partners of state parks.
