A list of 220 California state parks – 6 in Marin – that could close – Marin Independent Journal.

These are the 220 state parks, state beaches, state recreation areas, museums and state reserves that officials say would be closed under Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s proposed budget cuts (parks in Humboldt/Del Norte are in bold):

Thanks to the MIJ for the article, I modified it for us up here. I may of missed some that are up here. The ones marked, are just the ones that stood out at me. Some notables, Fort Humboldt, Richardson Grove, Patrick’s Point.

Update: C&G found a better list via the Sac Bee, it has 22 parks from the District, which covers Del Norte, Humboldt, and Mendocino. I think I’ll need to go through that list to figure things out.

Comment by Fred Mangels

Wow, if those all close, Humboldt County is going to be in a world of hurt!

Comment by Kym

Obama and his blasted negro-arab destruction of America. Him and his White House cell had the upper hand in ALL of this. The blasted negro-arab tyranny of America. Blasted Obama. Enough is enough, you blasted terrorist bastard!!!! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, OBAMA!!!!!!!! Can’t anyone just get rid of Obama once and for all? Must him and his terrorist cell kill America so blasted much??!!!!

Comment by America

My thought….draft a law where the state has no liability for anyone staying in a state park without rangers or any other form of protection.
Let us put our money in a self registration slot and let us camp/make use of our California State Parks. This is done in the winter/off season in many states already, even in California. One person is paid to collect the money. No bathrooms, trash pickup, etc. are provided. NS

Comment by Nancy Shipley

I think you need some anger management classes. Plus, isn’t all of this a STATE issue….uh…that would be Arnold, not Obama.

Comment by Anonymous

Anon, poking fun at someone’s religious garments be they Hindu, Jew, Muslim or Mormon doesn’t promote peace on earth.

Comment by Kym

Wow…certainly not the right forum for this kind of hate.

How much you want to bet the anonymous poster who posted twice is another commie negro in an American hood, or posting directly into America from africa. Oh, why do negroes hide so much in America? Why? Themselves and their intentions.

Anger management problem? Yea, 9/11 needed anger management, too. Rigged elections in America needed anger management. Obamas “people” killing our cities, our car industry and our manufacturing sector and our banking industry and our economy and our entire way of life needs anger management. Affirmative action, illiteracy, crime, pimps, rap culture, grade school dropouts, misogyny, homophobia, antiWhite, antiAsian, antiPersian, AIDS, poverty, starvation, animalistic stupidity and terrorism needs anger management. AntiAmericans and their terrorist agent in our White House need anger management.

America WILL get rid of you for ALL of these things.

Comment by America

I like this idea, the only problem is people tend to trash things. No bathrooms, would be bad in some areas.

Comment by capdiamont

Thanks Kym.

Comment by capdiamont

Things got a little weird here. This a state issue, been in the making for decades, before Obama was born, I think. So to blame him, is inaccurate at best.

I have no problem with a Black man as a president of our country. I have no problem with any race, or gender as president of our country.

There, lets see how that throws people for a fit.

220 of 229 state parks are slated to close. 1,500 of 2,900 State Park employees may be laid off.

Comment by Ernie's Place

That doesn’t add up does it? If they are keeping less than 10% of the parks why would they need over half the employees still? Looks to me like the government doesn’t really expect to close them all. Still closing even one seems very sad.

Comment by Kym

I’m thinking that they can’t completely close them. There has to be some care of them. I’m not sure though.

Comment by capdiamont

I was the first anonymous poster…and let’s see…I am very white, quite fair, blond, blue eyes and I teach kindergarten in Orange County. I love the state parks and hate to see them on the chopping blocks. That’s all. There must be some other place for you to vent your anger. Maybe
