Throughout March, the parking lots, playgrounds, dog runs, access roads and picnic areas of parks across California were shuttered indefinitely in an attempt to limit transmission of the novel coronavirus and encourage residents to shelter-in-place. Come hear from parks leaders at the local, regional and state level as they talk about the ongoing processes related to decision making and the pandemic, the indicators that will kickstart a return to normalcy for our parks systems and what "normal" actually might be like going forward.
