Mission Statement

Natural Resource Management Program

The goal of the State Parks resource management program is to protect, restore, and maintain the natural resources in the State Park System. Areas of outstanding natural resources and those areas under-represented in the system are identified, along with lands that could connect these islands of habitat.

Cultural Resource Management Program

The goal of the State Parks cultural management program is to provide inspiration and leadership in acquiring, conserving, and managing cultural resources that represent California's rich history and diverse population and to foster an appreciation of the extraordinary value of California's cultural heritage for the enjoyment of present and future generations through access, education, service and stewardship.
