Webinar Topic: What’s next for parks in California?
Description: As the COVID-19 crisis unfolded, Californians turned increasingly to parks and open spaces not only for physical activity and fresh air but also for stress relief and their well-being. With some parks reporting a 400 percent increase in visitation when we first began sheltering in place, this enthusiasm for our parks actually forced some to temporarily close to keep the visiting public safe and socially distanced. Through it all, it is clear that the parks, public lands, and open spaces that we’ve protected are essential to Californians.
Now, as our state begins to heal and move forward into our new normal, questions remain about how to open and recreate in the parks safely, and how we can ensure that our parks meet the demands and needs of a growing, diverse, and stressed population.
