State Parks Looking for Funds

Parks across California are hoping to receive money during a time of budget cuts.

Malibu Creek State Park is among a number of parks across California looking to receive a portion of money raised in the Preserve Our Parks campaign.

Coca-Cola and Stater Bros. Charities are teaming up to promote the six-week campaign, which is aimed at supporting Southern California parklands. 

Customers are encouraged to support the campaign while shopping at Stater Bros. Supermarkets by making a $1 or $5 tax-deductible donations to the Preserve Our Parks campaign.

The voter approved bond money for Wetlands Restorations is finally unearthing the toxic creosoted telephone poles, asphalt,concrete debris with rusting re-bar, rusting pipe and acres of unnatural road fill out of the Western Channels that was used as a dump site during the 30's and 40's . The money spent will have a positive lasting affect for wildlife habitat.The hundreds of thousands of dollars that were donated to the Wetlands Defense Fund has only enhanced executors and lawyers bank accounts without contributing one penny towards the enhancement of any State Parks , Be nice if the Wetlands Defense fund could accomplish something positive by pushing some of there donations towards our local Malibu Creek State Park.

Cece - Have you been reading what is going on recently re the secret State Parks slush fund? Your head is in the sand, and the sand is toxic.

Gullibilty is rampant. Cece is just another of its victims. For the $54 Million Cover-Up, I'm sure "No one is to blame!" (NOT!) How about giving Coca-Cola their money back so they can re-give it to a worthy cause -- not a fraud-concocted "we're broke" campaign.

Yes Ted, being in your your profession, I am sure you encounter slimeballs everywhere! I am glad you acknowledge that the sand is toxic at Surfrider and needs to be cleaned up. I am curious, are you making a connection of corruption between the Sacramento Representives in accounting for State Parks and the Lagoon Restoration Project which has been financed by voter approved bond money? Can you weave us through your conspiratorial theories? Please indulge us. Ryan, Thanks for the heads up, but "gullibility" and "victim" are definitely not words to describe me. However, if you would like to elaborate on your theory of what is going through my mind, I would be open to hearing it. : ) Most of the supporters of the Lagoon Restoration Project, especially Steve and I, are firm believers in questioning authority. Believe it or not there are actually a few well intended people on the state payroll. Every employee we have met on the Lagoon Restoration Project are passionate, well meaning, wildlife loving workers.
