SPUR has launched a new ticketing system and we're asking you to register for each event that you're planning to attend. This will help us keep you informed of any changes that may occur and enable us to better tailor our programming to your interests.
A large and growing body of research makes it clear that access to parks improves health and quality of life. Recent research sponsored by the California State Parks Foundation indicates that our 280 state parks, including many of the Bay Area’s best-loved open spaces, are a largely untapped resource to meet some of the state’s loftiest policy goals. What barriers to accessing parks currently exist and how can we ensure positive park experiences for new visitors in order to inspire a sense of ownership and familiarity?
