Take a look at this article from SFGate.com:
In an effort to deal with a projected $14.5 billion deficit in the state budget, Gov. Schwarzenegger is proposing to close dozens of state parks *indefinitely*, including 9 in the Bay Area. These 9 parks include Henry W. Coe State Park near Morgan Hill (the largest state park in Northern California); Candlestick Point State Recreation Area, the first urban recreation area in California and a popular fishing spot; Austin Creek State Recreation Area and Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve near Guerneville; Tomales Bay State Park in Inverness.
I don't know about you, but some of these are my favorite parks! This proposal is very, very wrong.
If you value these oases of nature, please contact the state legislators below and tell them you are opposed to these closures!
