American White Pelican graces "California Parklands"

California State Parks Foundation sends a newsletter to its members three times a year, and the cover of the summer 2010 issue shows an American White Pelican in flight just above the water at Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park in the state's northeastern region. The neat action shot adds to the avian theme that begins with the foundation's California Quail logo.

Due to the state's budget crisis, the state parks have had to reduce their hours, services and maintenance. In response, the foundation urges California voters to approve Proposition 21 on Nov. 2. If approved, it will create State Parks and Wildlife Conservation Trust Fund via an $18 surcharge in annual vehicle license fees.

How are your state parks faring? Are budget cuts directed at them?
