Promoting education, preservation & restoration of the natural & cultural resources of Russian River area State Parks
The State Parks of Sonoma County's coast and Russian River valley are rich in natural and cultural history, biological diversity and distinctive geology. Our mission is to promote education, preservation and restoration of the natural and cultural resources of Russian River area State Parks through interpretation and public stewardship. We do this (with the help of 350 volunteers) by providing park visitors of all ages with a variety of programs and opportunities to experience and explore these exceptional parks.
With your support, Stewards is protecting Austin Creek State Recreation Area with volunteer patrols and stewardship support. We are working towards reopening closed camping areas on the Sonoma Coast, as well as continue all our existing education and stewardship programs during these unprecedented times. We will continue to support efforts to secure a sustainable funding source for our state parks. All donations will help us achieve our goal of KEEPING YOUR PARKS OPEN.
Austin Creek Annual Report - August 2012 to June 30, 2013
Stewards plays an important advocacy role for California State Parks. For decades, California's park system, the nation's largest, has been under funded. This has lead to serious understaffing and a $1.3 billion deferred maintenance backlog. In May 2008, the National Trust for Historic Preservation placed our entire state parks system on the list of the top 11 most endangered historic places. Stewards routinely advocates for the needs of our State Park treasures, ensuring they will be open and available for public enjoyment for generations to come.
