Making History, Staying Hopeful 

In January, our nation witnessed history. We watched as Kamala Harris was sworn in as the first Black, South Asian, and woman vice president of the United States. We listened as the first National Youth Poet Laureate, Amanda Gorman, recited an inspirational poem, “The Hill We Climb.” 

At Parks California, we feel hopeful that the historic moments have only just begun. Now, we’re witnessing a series of federal climate initiatives that will expand protections for some of our country’s most cherished natural spaces and people, including: 

These recent actions of the Biden-Harris administration are closely aligned with California’s own climate initiatives, and will have ripple effects for generations to come – down to the very last drop of water or grain of sand.  

So here we are, living by Amanda’s words and feeling hopeful and brave enough to see the lightAs we look around, we can see this same feeling of hope spreading across our communities and partners as a direct result of these momentous steps.
