Registration is now open for CSPF’s 14th Annual Park Advocacy Day, taking place on Tuesday, May 3rd in Sacramento. We hope you will join us and make sure your organization and state parks are represented!
Over 140 youth ages 4-18 entered CSPF’s inaugural Youth Art Contest, submitting artwork inspired by the theme of “California’s State Parks are Great Places for You and Me”. We are proud to announce the winners!
When you head out to the desert, David Strayer is the kind of man you want behind the wheel. He never texts or talks on the phone while driving. He doesn’t even approve of eating in the car. A cognitive psychologist at the University of Utah who specializes in attention, Strayer knows our brains are prone to mistakes, especially when we’re multitasking and dodging distractions. Among other things, his research has shown that using a cell phone impairs most drivers as much as drinking alcohol does.
Strayer is in a unique position to understand what modern life does to us. An avid backpacker, he thinks he knows the antidote: Nature.
