While the COVID-19 pandemic has curtailed summer travel for many, locals can take day trips to local state parks and beaches, the areas where Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks partners with California State Parks to co-manage 32 state parks and beaches.
Visitors also help support local state parks and beaches by paying parking and other fees, most of which stay local to help Friends fund local jobs, maintenance, educational programming and more.
