Be a Founder

Parks California was formed to create greater access to parks, workforce development, capital improvements, resource protection, and more – but we can’t do it alone. Parks California Founders are an exceptional, forward-thinking group of individuals, corporations, and foundations whose significant support accelerates our mission and invests in our early accomplishments. 

As we continue to build the foundation of Parks California, we extend our deepest gratitude to our current founders, who help us build a stronger, more resilient state park system.
