Use your voice for Our Parks, Our Future


All Californians should have access to the positive impacts parks have on health, happiness and quality of life - but not everyone does. At the heart of our work, California State Parks Foundation advocates for an excellent state parks system – one that provides equitable access for all Californians to experience its beauty and benefits.

Our Parks, Our Future embodies the belief that youth, now and for generations to come, hold within them the future of our California state parks.

We believe in the transformative power of experiences in parks – that if youth are exposed to state parks, engaged in meaningful outdoor experiences and empowered to use their voices, they will become the next generation of committed park stewards.

Our Parks, Our Future empowers everyone to use their voice
