Central Coast State Parks Association is looking for new board members - maybe that's you!
CCSPA, in partnership with California State Parks, promotes public awareness and stewardship of our natural resources and cultural heritage, now and for future generations. As a cooperative association, we support interpretation, education, and volunteer efforts in CA State Parks along the Central Coast.
Have you visited the Monarch Butterfly Grove in Pismo Beach? Taken a stroll through the Spooner Ranch House at Montaña de Oro State Park? Attended a Mind Walks seminar in Morro Bay or explored the exhibits at the Museum of Natural History in Morro Bay State Park? These are all places and programs that we support, and we'd love more help!
Board members must have a passion for the education, interpretation, and conservation of our State Parks. We meet once a month in San Luis Obispo, and look for board involvement in a variety of events and programs throughout the year. We encourage ongoing learning and skills-building in our board members by supporting board member attendance at Spokes' training sessions. Board positions have two year terms, renewable for a maximum of three consecutive terms. CCSPA's main purpose is to raise funds for the parks' programs, so as a board member, PARTICIPATING IN FUNDRAISING EFFORTS IS EXPECTED.
Currently, we are seeking community members with any of the following skills, attributes, or experience:
residents of south county or SLO
member of a young family
racial, cultural, or ethnic diversity
experience in the tourism industry
experience in the financial industry (accounting, investment)
experience in risk management
experience in marketing
experience in fundraising and/or grant writing
If you have any of the skills or experience listed above and are interested in learning more about CCSPA and exploring this opportunity, please contact Kristin Howland, Executive Director, firstname.lastname@example.org, 805-548-0391.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Central Coast State Parks Association
202 Tank Farm Road Suite H2, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401, US
Central Coast State Parks Association, in partnership with California State Parks, promotes public awareness and stewardship of our natural resources and cultural heritage, now and for future generations. As a cooperative association, we support interpretation, education, and volunteer efforts in local state parks. Our organization is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit. We are one of 85 similar cooperating associations across the state who work in partnership with State Parks.
CCSPA's primary purpose is to raise funds for educational and interpretive programs within our local state parks. Purchase firewood from your camp host next time you are camping at Montaña de Oro, Morro Bay State Park, Morro Strand State Beach, Pismo State Beach or Oceano State Beach - proceeds help support our programs while keeping you warm. Or attend one of our special events and have a great time while getting to know like-minded people supporting education in local state parks. And of course, becoming a member helps support our programs year-round!
As the political nature of state programs has evolved over the past few years, so has CCSPA. Today, part of CCSPA's efforts include advocating for California State Parks throughout California to assure the conservation, recreation, and education legacy of California State Parks remains for generations.
