The Latest on Hidden State Parks Funds


Many of you have asked us about the alleged hiding of $54 million by a California State Parks (CSP) official. The news came last month as 70 parks face closure because of the state’s budget crisis. We will continue to work with California State Parks to make the park system viable because CSP takes care of most of the redwood forestland you and Save the Redwoods League have protected. Redwoods are innocent bystanders in this crisis, and they need our continued help. See answers to your questions.

Your donations helped protect Hendy Woods State Park's magical ancient forest (pictured) by keeping the park open and by securing matching funds to repair water lines there.

Your Gifts Secure Match for Park Improvements


Your generous donations recently helped obtain matching funds for essential operating expenses and infrastructure projects at three amazing redwood parks that faced closure: Portola Redwoods, Hendy Woods and Standish-Hickey. Totaling $130,000, your gifts helped cover operational shortfalls and plans for improvements of septic systems, campsites, shelters, bridges and more. Now these parks will receive more than $1 million from the State Parks and Recreation Fund and matching funds from California Assembly Bill 1478. Thank you!
