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. 

Membership includes:

  • 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..


Enjoy sunsets and King Tides this month

Have we mentioned how much we love this time of year? The sunsets are stunners, the weather is still mild and the views are breathtaking. King Tides are a great time to go tide pooling and enjoy the expansive beach created by negative (super low) tides, and they are happening December 13-15.

Our diverse parks and beaches have something for everyone. Start exploring today.

Socially distance at a state park or beach

Headed to a local state park or beach this weekend? Remember to protect yourself and others by bringing a mask and practicing safe social distancing. Learn more about the Parks Pledge.
