Climbing in California State Parks in jeopardy!
Your help is needed to stop the indefinite closure of 70 California State Parks. As budget battles continue in Sacramento, parks around the state face an uncertain future. In response to recent cuts, the California Department of Parks and Recreation has released a list of state parks that will be closed. Included in the closures are the granite spires of Castle Crags State Park and the iconic sandstone boulders of Castle Rock State Park. The park closures will cut off access to these popular climbing areas, eliminate a funding source for the state, and severely impact local economies. Click here to go to the Access Fund's Action Center where you can write your state representative—and copy Ruth Coleman, Director of California State Parks—today and tell them to restore funding for California State Parks!
