Park Advocacy Day

Park Advocacy Day

Since 2004, California State Parks Foundation has hosted Park Advocacy Day to demonstrate the political strength of the parks movement and build a strong community of advocates for park policies and legislation.

Be a part of that strong community on Tuesday, May 7, 2019, in Sacramento. You’ll learn how to take action for parks and share your park story with state elected officials and policy staff. The full day of activities will include remarks from legislators, tools to be an effective advocate, meetings with legislators and more.

An optional workshop day on May 6 is also available to review many issues affecting state parks (and give you an opportunity to ask questions about these issues) and feature tools and resources for using storytelling for effective advocacy. Leading up to Park Advocacy Day we will also host a series of webinars. More details to come.

This year’s Park Advocacy Day will highlight the importance of parks in our communities, to our collective health and to preserving natural and cultural resources. We will advocate for park policies and resources that enhance the health and wellness of youth to ensure they have the opportunity to experience the significant benefits of parks, in order to foster the next generation of empowered parks stewards.

When you attend Park Advocacy Day, you’ll use your voice to send a powerful message to policymakers that California’s state parks are important places that need to be protected and that all Californians should have the opportunity to learn, visit and explore.

This year we feature our parks story about the importance of parks in our community, to our collective health, and preservation of natural and cultural resources. We will also advocate for park policies and resources that enhance the health and wellness of children, so that we will foster the next generation of empowered parks stewards who, in return, have the opportunity to experience the significant benefits of parks.
