California can't pay to reopen its national parks
Posted by Staff

Several states have offered to reopen National Parks in an attempt to snatch back some of the millions in tourist dollars scattered to the winds by the government shutdown, but California won't be among them, state officials said Thursday.

The state can barely afford to take care of its own parks, let alone move in on federal land.

Many of California's 280 state parks, which were closed or partially closed due to the state's budget crisis years ago, have remained open to the public because private citizens and groups stepped forward with donations to fund the operations.
