JoyceYou Made This a Good Year for Our Parks

As we enter this season of gratitude and of giving, we are thankful for all of you who have given so generously to support state parks on the San Mateo coast. Your commitment to the parks and this beautiful coast is truly inspiring.

This has been a busy year and, because of you, much has been accomplished.

With your help, we have expanded the association’s contributions to the parks, filling gaps in funding in new areas, including protecting access to Gray Whale Cove State Beach and funding the first steps in the restoration of Pigeon Point Light Station.

To emphasize our broader commitment to the coast and the parks, we have changed our name to Coastside State Parks Association (CSPA) --a name that emphasizes our close partnership with the parks and reflects our broader role. In the weeks ahead, you will be seeing changes in our website and other communications that will reflect our new name.

A new member has joined the CSPA Board--Arthur Chait, a businessman with strong experience in both the corporate and nonprofit worlds. We welcome his important contributions to the association.

Looking ahead to the New Year, we hope you will be able to join us for the new and expanded Seal Adventure at Año Nuevo State Park on January 26 and 27, 2013--a unique opportunity to have extraordinary access to see the elephant seals at the height of the breeding season. Watch your email for your invitation, and make your reservations promptly since we expect tickets to sell out quickly.

With your help, we hope to make 2013 an even better year for our Coastside state parks.

CSPA President
