VP of Programs – 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.
