The Guv has proposed closing 70 state parks to ease the budget burden a bit, and several are in our area -- including Fort Humboldt and Grizzly Creek Redwoods State Park, through which the Van Duzen River flows.
Some of these parks have been saved from closure by private and government entities; most have not. A week from now, Wednesday, March 21, State Sen. Noreen Evans hosts an eTown Hall Meeting, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. This is your time to webchat about the proposed closures and submit your brilliant ideas on how to avert them. And to jab those pointy walking sticks at your computer screen.
Go here and follow the directions (including how to RSVP).
