Bad Ending To National Parks and Recreation Month

Due to California's ongoing budget crisis, Gov. Schwarzenegger just cut another $6 million out of the state's parks system. As a result, up to 100 of the state's 279 parks and beaches may be forced to close. The 2-star California State Parks Foundation and the state parks department are asking for donations from foundations, corporations and individuals to help keep the parks and beaches open.

If you are troubled by this development, then you may want to consider not just supporting California's park system, but other parks across the country. The following video, about National Parks and Recreation Month, provides about some financially healthy charities dedicated to preserving our parks.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
