All indicators point to success in our signature gathering drive to place the State Parks & Wildlife Conservation Trust Fund Act—or the state parks initiative—on the November ballot! We want to thank all of the amazing people who have responded to our calls to volunteer to gather signatures up and down the state. Since January, hundreds of energetic volunteers have set up shop just about everywhere including, REI stores (thank you REI!), Farmers Markets, coffee shops, community centers, and of course state parks.
The initiative has also received key endorsements from many environmental and conservation groups, and from the business world. There is no question that businesses recognize the value of parks and open space. Some of these supporters include (to name just a few), the California Travel Industry Association, California Lodging Industry Association, and Patagonia. However, we still have lots of work to do!
