Gov Schwarzenegger released a proposed budget today that targets California’s $14.5 billion deficit.   One of the money-saving proposals involves closing 48 state parks out of a total of 270 parks.  Tomales is on the list.  The parks would remain closed until the budget crisis passes and would be patrolled to prevent unauthorized appreciation of nature.

Here’s the list of proposed park closures.  Many of my favorites are on the list.  How about you?  Do you think that closing parks is better than closing schools or reducing welfare?  Read the comments on the Chronicle article for other options.

Bottom line: get out there and visit some of these parks just in case.
