Research shows that spending time in the outdoors is associated with better mental and physical health. California has a wealth of state parks, and many public libraries are likely within driving distance of one. By reducing barriers to park access and partnering with entities such as public libraries, the state can help more Californians explore the outdoors and gain the benefits of our parks.
The California State Library Parks Pass program distributed 5,000 free vehicle-day use hangtags to all library jurisdictions in the state. This removed the economic barrier of day-use fees. As trusted community partners, grantees will generate positive measurable impacts in the areas of health, natural resource stewardship, and historical and cultural connections with an equity lens.
Parks Pass grant funding is open to all public libraries circulating a California State Library Parks Pass. Grants of up to $5,000 will be available.
