Organizer/AuthorChloe Good
The Governor FY 08-09 state budget proposes to close 48 state parks. The list includes Candlestick Point State Recreation Area, one of the few open spaces in Bayview Hunters Point and a critical wetland and wildlife habitat. Candlestick is in the midst of a multi-year remediation and restoration project addressing acute contamination from industrial and military pollution, and is one of the few revenue generating state parks.

Hear from a Candlestick Park Ranger, Literacy for Environmental Justice, the California Parks Foundation, local residents and community members on the proposed closure of Candlestick Park and join in a discussion about what we can do to stop it.

Also hear a presentation about the 2008 GGNRA Big Year: a race to save the Golden Gate Recreation Area’s endangered species. For more information visit http://www.ggnrabigyear.org.
