We  advocate  for policy changes that create more access to natural areas for all communities.



Advocacy plays a major role in our efforts to increase equitable access to the outdoors. Our programs develop and train young leaders and staff who travel to Sacramento and work locally to conduct education and outreach to policymakers and communities. We partner with community-based organizations to provide outdoor access programming and share replicable program models and best practices in the field. We make sure to keep a close eye on public funding opportunities and advocate for the inclusion of community access programs in park and open space legislation. We recently saw success in incorporating community access language into Prop 68: California Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access For All Act of 2018. The inclusion of community access in the bill will ensure that efforts are made to increase access to the outdoors through programs and funding for underrepresented communities.
