Overview
The California state parks system is the largest and most diverse in the country. Yet it has failed to keep up with the state’s changing needs and does not have the financial resources to care for and operate the system in the future. This renewal grant will support a second year of funding for a collaborative effort to update state policies and funding for state parks to ensure they respond to the needs of current and future residents. The Parks Forward Initiative is coordinated by Resources Legacy Fund and has the support of the governor’s office, as well as the California Parks Commission. The Packard, Moore, Bechtel, and Irvine foundations, among others, have joined to support this effort.

Grants to this Grantee
for the International Boreal Conservation Campaign  
Resources Legacy Fund serves as fiscal sponsor for the International Boreal Conservation Campaign (IBCC), which empowers Canadians to protect the boreal forestlands for the benefit of people and nature. For instance, IBCC supports the Indigenous Leadership Initiative to help strengthen indigenous nationhood and fulfill indigenous cultural responsibilities to the land. The Indigenous Leadership Initiative is working with First Nations across Canada on land-use planning, designation of new Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas, and programs to fund Indigenous Guardians to steward these protected areas.

for the Western Energy Project  
The Resources Legacy Fund’s Western Energy Project works to protect treasured landscapes in the American West by ensuring that any development of oil and gas from our federal public lands is done in a responsible manner. The Fund empowers diverse organizations to preserve ecologically and culturally important areas; support the adoption of common-sense protections for our water, air, land, and wildlife; and work to safeguard opportunities for Americans to enjoy our public lands across the Intermountain West.
