History of SPAN
The State Park Action Network was launched in October 2014, following the retirement of the Save Our State Parks Campaign (SOS).
State Park Action Network recognizes that although the immediate threat of park closures is no longer on the forefront, California’s state park system continues to face immense challenges. Through State Park Action Network, member organizations join the California State Parks Foundation’s statewide efforts to raise awareness of California’s state parks and advocate in support of policies that will move state parks toward a vision of excellence.
