If the Governor has his way the Anza-Borrego Desert will be off limits due to state budget cuts.
Anza Borrego is on the chopping block along with 219 other parks in the California State Parks system. According to an article in the Union Tribune, the parks being targeted do not have enough visitors to offset the costs associated with keeping them open.
Governor Schwarzenegger's budget would cut $213 million from the state parks budget over the next two years.
So let me get this right, Californians who have had to trim back on their vacation budgets can no longer take a weekend mini-vacation to their local state park?
Please take a minute and sign the petition rejecting this proposal and save our state parks.
