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.
