Official HQ/BRC Land Use Battle Wagon
The Recreation HQ was encouraged recently when it read about Raley’s effort to raise funds to help keep regular California State Parks in the black.
Fresno Bee Article on Supermarket Fundraiser
For several years, HQ has been encouraging California State Parks that the best way to keep regular parks open is to think out-side-of-box and make their program more relevant and self-sustaining. HQ also cautioned state park leadership and the legislature against continuing to lean on OHV Trust Fund monies as a “fiscal crutch.”
March 10,2010 Blog on Encouraging Parks to Become Relevant and Use Creative Ways to Stay Open
Please take the poll in the upper left hand corner of this blog page. The idea for ads and coupons that could be placed in state park mailings came to me as an idea when I opened some correspondence from the U.S Postal Service and they had a number of local ads. Several of which I intend to take advantage of.
Feel free to share your ideas on how State Parks can stay in the black.
Thanks in advance for your service and ideas!
