Ideas about our water emergency from different perspectives
The news is here! $5,000 was given to the Sea and Desert Association to keep the park open past the proposed closure date of this Sunday. There is still a huge need for donations to make this work, but for the meantime it is great news.
I can’t fully celebrate though, because even though 40 parks have figured it out and 25 more have been granted time by the state to figure out their agreements and funding, according to the AP, there are still five parks closing Sunday. If you can go to any of them to see them, celebrate them, and say goodbye, I would strongly recommend it.
Benicia State Recreation Area, the California Mining and Mineral Museum, Gray Whale Cove State Beach, Providence Mountains State Recreation Area, and Zmudoski State Beach were all listed in the AP article (linked above) to close. From the best of my knowledge, however, and this article I found, Gray Whale Cove and Benicia State Recreation Area are going to stay open past Sunday. Providence Mountains have already been closed, and the only news I can find in a basic search is about vandalism that happen there in February after the place was shuttered.
