About Park Champions
CSPF’s Park Champions Program holds volunteer work days in state parks across California. This program was created in response to the unprecedented budget cuts that California State Parks face right now. In partnership with California State Parks, Park Champions provide consistent, sustainable volunteer support in the areas of park maintenance and beautification.
Park Champions projects improve the quality, safety and preservation of our state parks. Projects in the past year have included trail repair, invasive plant removal, habitat restoration, the rehabilitation of an historic orchard, fence construction, bridge construction, and re-painting park structures. If you enjoy volunteering outdoors, want to work with a fun group of people, and you want to make a difference in our state parks, then become a Park Champion and join us for the next work day happening near you!

This month we have been invited to take a tour of Bob and Carol's beautiful garden and homestead in Oceanside. Come see how much food can be grown in a small space. They have many fruit trees, veggie beds, edible landscaping chickens, rainwater and greywater harvesting and much more. It's also a great opportunity to bring your own questions and share successes and cuttings from your own garden. Please bring a vegetarian dish to share
