Help Save Our Hiking Environment!

The California Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) proposes to adopt new regulations restricting off-trail use in reserves and preserves. This rulemaking action clarifies and makes specific the authority for regulating offtrail use in Natural Preserves, Cultural Preserves, State Cultural Reserves, and State Natural Reserves within the California State Park System. Specifically the proposed regulations would prohibit all public use in these areas unless such use is on a trail, boardwalk or other designated route of travel, unless approved by DPR.

Sierra Club San Diego OPPOSES this action. In it’s comment letter to the DPR, Sierra Club San Diego stated that “Sierra Club San Diego believes that the scope of the proposed rule is far too broad, and that enforcement of such a rule in places like Anza-Borrego would hinder rather than help the preservation of California’s cultural preserves, open space, and wilderness.”  Read our Letter for State Parks.

PUBLIC HEARING-Please Attend!!
Let’s not lose our access to many of the places in our parks, like that of Anza-Borrego, which “…we have lovingly enjoyed and protected for decades.”

WHERE:San Diego County Operations Center, Hearing Room, 5520 Overland Avenue, San Diego, CA 93123.
WHEN:June 22, 2016, 6 pm – 8 pm.

At the hearing, any person may present statements or arguments orally or in writing relevant to the proposed actions described in the Informative Digest. DPR requires that persons making oral comments at the hearing also submit a written copy of their testimony at the hearing. Read the public hearing notice.06.09.16 here.
