A strong voice for state parks

With half our state parks on the chopping block, we helped more than 2,000 Arizonans urge Gov. Jan Brewer to keep our parks open and in public hands. We also built support at the Statehouse, meeting with Senate President Steve Pierce, Senate Minority Leader David Shapira and others. And after hundreds of our supporters fought back against plans to privatize our parks, a Gov. Brewer-appointed panel took that option off the table -- at least for now.
