Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The San Onofre Foundation is a California non-profit 501(c) (3) public benefit, charitable corporation, whose mission is to provide for education and interpretive services regarding all aspects of the natural, cultural, historical and biological diversity of California State Parks at San Onofre and San Clemente State Beaches; promoting environmental awareness and ethics; and enhancing the quality of recreation experience at these unique coastal parks.
The Foundation will work co-operatively with California State Parks to develop and promote a strong image that San Onofre State Beach is a "World Treasure" that must never be compromised; will provide quality education and interpretive panels developing and sharing a complete story of the park units; will seek to facilitate a safe pedestrian railroad crossing to Lower Trestles surfing beach and develop an environmentally friendly raised boardwalk above the marsh at the Lower Trestles beach access trail; and will expand operations of the San Clemente State Beach Historic Cottage Visitor Center.
The Foundation provides support by sponsoring, publishing, purchasing, distributing, or selling appropriate items which increase visitor understanding and appreciation of State Park System values and purposes. The Foundation may receive funds from donations, membership dues, grants, special event sponsorship and other park-related activities. The Foundation may acquire materials, equipment and other items for use in the educational and interpretive programs of the parks. The Foundation may sponsor, support, and assist docent programs, environmental educational activities, resource management projects in support of such programs; provide seminars, lectures and other activities that contribute to the mission. The Foundation may plan, organize and implement fundraising programs to acquire contributions in support of State Park interpretive and educational activities.
