2024-2027 Strategic Plan 

The next three years will be an exciting, fast-moving time at California State Parks Foundation. We welcome you to join us — volunteer, advocate, donate, or follow us on social media to help us along this path. 

We not only must live with our day-to-day decisions, but we must be responsible for long-range decisions, the results of which may not show up for several hundred years.
