Educational Experiences and Infrastructure


1.           Executive Summary


Portola Redwoods and Castle Rock State Parks, located in the Santa Cruz Mountains, provide unparalleled hiking, camping, and priced recreation close to the Bay area.


The Portola and Castle Rock Foundation (PCRF) is the official state-chartered cooperating association supporting an interpretive agenda at these parks. With the advent of the parks crisis in 2011, we expanded our mission, raised funds and engaged with partners to keep these parks open, actively engage on behalf of Parks, and provide required resources to preserve these important resources.

We are raising the bar by working with California State Parks and our partners to make needed infrastructure investments in these cherished parks.
