Make a donation and give the gift of Friends this holiday season!
Looking for a unique holiday gift? Consider a membership to Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks.
This is a gift you can feel good about giving! Gift memberships help to support Friends’ work at state parks and beaches AND get your loved one, friend or colleague out in nature.
- Personalized membership card
- One-day, day-use pass good at any State Park or Beach in Santa Cruz County
- 15% off purchases at all five ParkStores: Seacliff, Natural Bridges, Santa Cruz Mission, Wilder Ranch and New Brighton (when open)
- Invitation to special events
- Bi-monthly e-news subscription
Looking for other creative gifts that also give back to the community? Consider making a donation to the Friends Fire Fund to make an investment in recovery from the CZU Lightning Complex fire at our damaged parks.
The Tribute Tables program, a collaboration between Friends and California State Parks, provides an opportunity to honor a loved one, celebrate a milestone or demonstrate community support. Made of solid redwood, our custom-engraved picnic tables will provide a place of respite for you and other park visitors. The name of the honoree will be engraved into the cross-timber on one end of the Tribute Table.
Special projects at local state parks and beaches also need support. Give to the Kids2Parks field trip program, make a donation to the Wilder Ranch Farm Animal Program or help fund the restoration of the Castro Adobe this holiday season..
