Maureen Cavanaugh (Guest Host): From the coastline of Big Sur to the Anza-Borrego desert, the California State Park System is one of the largest and most diverse in the nation. With more than 270 state parks, consisting of nearly 1.4 million acres, California's state parks feature an incredible variety -- something for everyone. One group working to preserve the parks system is the California State Parks Foundation.
You can support state parks by participating in the California State Parks Foundation's 10th Anniversary Earth Day Restoration & Clean-up on April 21. It's going on at three locations in San Diego County:
Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, Ocotillo Wells State Vehicular Recreation Area, and Torrey Pines State Reserve. For more information, visit www.calparks.org
- Sara Feldman, Southern California director of the California State Parks Foundation -- a non-profit organization that supports the state park system.
