In the last several years, California's state park system has been proposed to be shut down to the public - first in January 2008 and again in May 2009. These proposals have been eye-opening to all Californians who support their state parks. Yet often in times of crisis, opportunities and new ideas emerge. In this moment, we believe it is critical to begin a public dialogue about what excellence in California's state park system should look like.
Your participation in this web survey will help create a new vision for excellence. More than simply a satisfaction survey of your last visit to a state park, this is geared toward park users and non-users alike, in order to create a picture of your wishes, ideas, dreams and suggestions for the future of our state parks. Your responses are anonymous and confidential. Thank you for taking part in this important survey!
