Kindley Walsh Lawlor, President and CEO, Parks California

“Positive interaction with nature can build meaningful connections that last a lifetime. I deeply believe in keeping connections to nature alive, and this Parks for Everyone benefit concert will help us provide more opportunities for all to build their own personal relationship with nature. It is exciting to work with StageIt and a lineup of generous artists once again, as we work in partnership with California State Parks to ensure that parks are for everyone!”

We couldn’t be happier to be helping Parks California with this initiative, and we hope the community will come to support making parks more accessible to all.  Parks California continues to do amazing work to make California public spaces amazing and we are happy to help with that mission.”
