To once again bring attention to the massive budget cuts of state parks, the California State Parks Foundation has declared the next two weekends to be those of advocacy. "The Save Our State Parks (SOS) Campaign is holding 'I ♥ State Parks' weekends of action from now through Labor Day to unite state parks supporters," the nonprofit announced. "Events will take place in many state parks throughout California and online. The 'I ♥ State Parks' weekends of action provide an opportunity for park advocates to come together, express support for California’s 279 state park system, and voice strong opposition to park closures." Over 100 parks could close next month. Two events are being held locally next week. One is the FYFest we spoke about yesterday and another will take place at the Baldwin Hills Overlook. You can also host your own event at a state park.
