Auburn Hotel to Host State Parks Workshop
The recently-named Parks Forward Commission will hold a workshop in Auburn on October 3, 2013 to gather new ideas from Gold Country residents on how to improve efficiency, create financial sustainability, and better leverage partnerships within California's state parks.
The workshop is part of an 18-month effort for the 12-member independent panel of experts, citizens, advocates, and thought-leaders to conduct a wholesale assessment of the State Park System and recommend substantial improvements.
The commission ultimately will design and adopt a long-term plan for a financially sustainable and functionally relevant State Park System that meets the needs of a changing population and provides an innovative model for the rest of the nation.
WHEN: Thursday, October 3, 2013, 1:00 - 5:00 p.m.
WHERE: Holiday Inn Auburn, 120 Grass Valley Highway in Auburn. The public is welcome to attend. The meeting will also be webcast live on www.cal-span.org.
