Re: [RC] closing of CA state parks - K Owens

I only get digest, so if no one else sent this today, this is important!!!!  Surely there is some other way CA can save some money other than by closing most of our state parks.

Let me see if this message works. Tomorrow this legislation will happen!!

In response to the threatened park closures, this also included Malibu Creek State Park, Sycamore Cyn, and Topanga. What this means to endurance riders is: loss of half the training grounds in the northern LA county, Ventura county area, NO MALIBU ENDURANCE RIDE!!, and no other endurance rides where your trail crosses state park lands. PLEASE, write today. This goes before the legislature tomorrow and per park service personnel up here, this is no bluff like last time. This also means groups like the Santa Monica Mountains Trails Council that voluntarily maintains trails won't be allowed in to keep them up.

Go to this website and there is a letter that can be edited. Once you fill in your information, the website sends your letter. It takes all of 5 minutes. Also, it popped up the following fax numbers for me.

Tony Strickland - 916-324-7544
Arnold - 916-558-3160
Audra Strickland - 916-319-2137

The web address is www.savestateparks.org. the letter is http://ga3.org/campaign/budget_may09?qp_source=ssp

Anyone on RC, please forward this.
