Launching our keeping Parks whole grant round amid covid-19: park closures due to covid-19 resulted in massive revenue loss for State Parks. With your help, to support California's State Parks and park partner organizations, we created a grant round to ensure Parks were supported during the initial adjustment to the pandemic. The keeping Parks whole grant round gave $100,000 in funding to support needs such as staff positions, park maintenance, and park programs. For more detail on the grant round, visit our blog at calparks.org/keepingparkswhole.
Engaging future park stewards in los angeles: our leading champion and chair of pathways to Parks, first partner jennifer siebel newsom, spent time with us visiting California State Parks, meeting with partners, and learning more about impactful programming working to improve the health and wellness of California's youth. It was a day of learning and listening to the trailblazers making equitable access to our public lands a reality for all californians. Read about the day and the incredible partners that came together for the future of Parks at calparks.org/laday.
