Ayúdanos a ayudar a nuestros parques y a la gente a seguir creciendo durante este tiempo.

Con una crisis de salud mundial, desempleo y aislamiento social, ha sido difícil saber a dónde acudir para encontrar la paz. A través de esta temporada continua de incertidumbre, los parques sirven como pulmones de nuestra región.

 Con las repercusiones financieras que se avecinan de 2020 para los muchos presupuestos de parques locales, estatales y federales, sabemos que esta carga recaerá en organizaciones comunitarias como nosotros, y necesitamos su ayuda para lograrlo.

We need to come together
to support our public lands

In the last year, we saw four out of ten adults reporting symptoms of anxiety or depression. Our neighborhood schools fell half a year behind in math due to the pandemic. The Dixie Fire and Caldor Fire burned over one million acres and threatened the future of Lake Tahoe. While we have come together as a community to build stronger connections with our public lands, we need to equally advocate for the wellbeing of our lands.

Our parks are struggling
under a higher demand

Studies show that one out of every three adults increased their use of public parks during the pandemic, and we see this with wear and tear on our park amenities, in park programs with higher demand, and more trash on our trails. The outdoors are creating a safe space for many, but these beloved areas need our care now more than ever.
