More than 70 volunteers participated in a National Trails Day community service project at Magnolia Ranch near Coloma. The event was sponsored by the American River Conservancy, REI and Bureau of Land Management. Volunteers repaired multi use trails, removed invasive plants, installed hitching posts and planted oak trees. Younger volunteers constructed and painted blue bird boxes which were installed on fence posts. T-shirts were given out and an appreciation lunch was held at the end of a great morning’s work!

This idea of closing state parks in CA is a bit worrisome. I wouldn't mind volunteering, say a day a month. Hopefully people who really care will pick up the slack. Perhaps we'll find out that the state might not actually be needed smoking smiley

The idea of selling them off is even more worrisome.

I agree. Lease the land to private companies, the lessees pay rent, the state collects the rent and the lessees worry about paying the employees. I've said this before with much opposition, but might be time to take me seriously for a minute or two.
