CA nonprofits, community leaders band together to change state parks system after budget cuts and recessionary threats nearly closed 70 of them for good.

"A group of California business, education and nonprofit leaders -- including Monterey Bay Aquarium founding director Julie Packard -- have agreed to help revamp the state parks system in an effort to restore confidence and financial stability to an institution rocked by scandal. The dozen volunteers will spend the next 18 months addressing the problems that led to the state threatening to close 70 of the 280 parks in the system after long years of funding shortages -- and more recent revelations that now-departed leaders socked money in a secret fund." -- KCRA.com
