We are happy to announce that Californian’s passed Proposition 68, the Clean Water and Safe Parks Act, on June 5, 2018 with 56 percent of the vote. The Portola and Castle Rock Foundation was proud to endorse and promote the Yes on 68 campaign.
Prop. 68’s success sends a clear message from voters about the need to address the state’s most critical parks, water, and natural resource needs. By passing the measure, voters authorized funding $4.1 billion in bonds to protect our water and natural areas and help to ensure every Californian has access to safe drinking water and safe parks.
Here are two Prop. 68 quotes from partner redwood forest protection organizations:
“Not only will Prop. 68 help keep our redwood forests alive and thriving, 68 works to protect wildlife habitat, watersheds, and other important natural and scenic features that define California’s wilderness, and encourages public appreciation and enjoyment of our environment,” said Sara Barth, Executive Director of the Sempervirens Fund.
“This measure will go a long way towards helping to protect and restore California’s redwood forests while introducing and connecting people to these wonders of the natural world,” said Sam Hodder, President & CEO of Save the Redwoods League.
