DescriptionAs Californians struggle to maintain their parks during tight economic times, closer partnerships between providers must be sought to protect the resources of many parks while also maintaining desirable levels of service. A process is discussed that has been used by the USDI Park Service and the California Department of Parks and Recreation in reviewing park goals, administration and management of interpretive, recreational, natural and cultural resources of 11 parks within 3 joint clusters, with common recommendations for interagency cost efficiencies and improved public service. This ongoing effort may point the way for increased cooperation between State and Federal and other levels of park management.
