The First 70: Closing Parks In California
The state of California is set to close 70 state parks in an effort to save money (which is a bad idea in itself and probably won’t work). This means that thousands of acres of natural history and beauty will no longer be maintained.
But the parks will not be erased. Instead, they will just lose their protectors, left to rot and deteriorate. How will we save them from polluters now? From vandals? From fire? How will we preserve these unspoiled lands and the life they contain?
The First 70 is a film project to draw attention to this misguided effort. Visit their site to find out how you can see the film and what you can do to help.
California, this is a terrible idea.
