Director of Community Engagement – Parks California

0 Comment

Parks California is an ambitious new organization working to ensure that our state’s parks thrive. From
redwood groves and desert springs to lighthouses and ghost towns, we’re working with our partners
to make California parks more welcoming, accessible, and relevant to all visitors.
Managing these assets for nearly 40 million residents and millions more annual visitors takes collective
work. Park managers cannot do it alone. Parks California will harness skills and resources—and
California’s renowned ingenuity—to help our state, regional, and local parks thrive and evolve.
Formed after extensive consultation with hundreds of stakeholders, park executives, and philanthropic
leaders, Parks California will stimulate and support innovative public-private partnerships that raise the
visibility of California’s parks and their partners, inspire passionate support for public lands, and set
trends for the future of parks. Parks California will attract new public and private funding, and provide
expertise and entrepreneurial approaches to high-priority projects and programs developed and
implemented in collaboration with the Department of Parks and Recreation (Department) and other
park districts across the state. Parks California will coalesce a diverse set of partners to make this vision
a reality. Parks California is committed to supporting and promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion
throughout the organization and its programs.
