Today on Your Call: What's the best way to save our state parks?
On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about state park closures. Due to budget cuts, California faces the indefinite closure of 70 of its 278 state parks this summer. But an alternative to the closures may be in transferring the parks to private or non-profit management. How do you think we can best keep our parks open while keeping their integrity and accessibility? And which ones would you most want to preserve? Join us at 10 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Are you planning to visit a state park this summer? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
