The California Legislature has transferred funds that-when combined with operating and donor agreements developed by local nonprofits – will ensure most state parks stay open for a year. The deal includes the 16 redwoods state parks scheduled to close this month because of the state’s budget crisis. Mill Creek forest in Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park will remain open on the weekends as well. Meanwhile, Save the Redwoods League is helping to keep Portola, Grizzly Creek and Hendy Woods redwoods state parks open while developing long-term solutions. You can help!
