SOS -Save Our State Parks.

"California State Parks announced a plan to close up to 70 of its 278 parks due to budget cuts. The closures are necessary to achieve an $11 million reduction in the next fiscal year 2011/12, that amount increasing to $22 million in the following fiscal year 2012/13. " (source: said Ruth Coleman, director of California State Parks 05/13/2011)

The beaches and parks in California are the most beautiful in the world. Right now the State Parks are in trouble. At least 70 parks are on a list for potential closure this year and some have already closed. We need every person's help to stop these park closures. You can help by visiting a local State Park at least once a month, buy an annual pass and share your passion for our beaches and parks with others. Make this year full of memories that will be spent at California Beaches or parks enjoying the outdoors. Help save California's outdoor life. Thank you in advance for helping to save the State Parks for our kids and other generations to come.  

You can buy an annual pass at:

OC Parks

You can call and get more information about annual passes: (714) 973-6865.
