Bringing State Parks Equity into the Spotlight
I’m hoping that this update will shine a little happiness your way in an otherwise odd and challenging time in our lives. Our small team of six here at Parks California holds the beauty of our state’s natural spaces as inspiration to stay focused, knowing that we, too, look forward to the days of consistent access to our state parks.
Given the unpredictability of what we’re allowed to do outside of our homes, we’re turning our attention to a series of Facebook Live events to unite leaders in the outdoor space.
Over the next few weeks, I will host three conversations about equity in California State Parks to celebrate progress and continue uncovering inclusive solutions that create meaningful change.
We will chat with:
Please mark your calendar and log into the conversation through our Facebook page. We're also happy to share that we’ve awarded 50 grants through our Reopening California State Parks, COVID-19 small grants program. We are proud to support the many nonprofit partners working to make parks safe and welcoming for all, and look forward to telling you more about our grantees shortly.
Meanwhile, remember to recreate responsibly during these summer months so that we protect one another and overcome COVID-19 as a community.
Wishing you and yours well,
P.S. If this work matters to you, please donate to help us continue making our state parks more equitable.
