Central Coast citizens and/or anyone who loves and is concerned about the future of this park! Time is running out! If you enjoy Garrapata State Park and want to protect it from certain deterioration and vandalism, then get involved. Here are some links that will get you to activists and legislators. Tell them that it’s time to stand up, get their heads out of the sand (or maybe somewhere else) and fund the park system. If, as the Governor says, it’s courageous to move ahead to build a high speed rail system, it is certainly courageous to find a way to keep these parks open. Only we can put the heat on so let’s get going!
Email Governor Jerry Brown: Here’s the link.
Email your State Legislators. Find them here.
Email the Director of Parks and Recreation, Ruth Coleman: firstname.lastname@example.org
Email The Secretary of The California Natural Resources Agency, John Laird: email@example.com
Even though this is a state finances issue, enlist the support of your federal representatives. One park, McGrath State Beach, has been kept off the closure list by means of a federal grant.
