About this project

A Mini Documentary "The Fight for Parks" on California's parks closures  and the people that work and enjoy these treasures. Hosted by Robert Hanna, the great-great-grandson of John Muir.

"In May 2011, the California Department of Parks and Recreation released a plan to close 70 of our most treasured state parks due to budget cuts.  Never in our great State’s history has a park been closed, and not even in the Great Depression did California’s leaders elect to place such a dark fate upon these amazing places.

Sadly, each of these parks have been scheduled to close on July 1st, 2012 leaving manypeople who work in and enjoy these wonderful places with no hope.

 Though the fast approaching deadline is upon us, we have an unbelievable opportunity to protect and preserve these treasures, now, and for all future generations to come. All across the state, people are coming together to find solutions that will keep their parks open.

We’re asking for donations to help us fund a high-quality mini documentary "The Fight for Parks". All money raised will go straight into the production and no profits will be made from your generous donations. I sincerely appreciate your help and thank you all for your consideration."

~ Robert Hanna
