Share Your Dreams for California State Parks


Save the Redwoods League and California State Parks Foundation just launched a new statewide, online survey that asks Californians to share their thoughts on what comprises an excellent parks system. The results of the data gathering will be synthesized into a report that will be published online in late summer 2010. The report will include what we can do to make the collective vision a reality.
