Tracking measurable success on efforts across California to preserve and connect our Parks & Wildlife Corridors



WE POST NEWS THREE WAYS:
1. long detailed stories on blogspot (here!)
2. short messages on Twitter
3. automated news feeds from CA enviro websites in the right-hand column which change frequently and are not archived by our website (that's why we now have a twitter account to permanently capture the memorable feeds)

Here's a website we stumbled across which is working on a similar goal as our http://ConnectingCalifornia.org project, ie. summarizing land preservation work all around the USA:

In the past decade protection of open space and natural areas by state and local government has dramatically increased, thanks primarily to voters who approved nearly 1,300 state and local ballot initiatives since 1998 (at a 76% success rate). Florida, California, and Colorado have been leaders at the state level. Localities use an array of methods to fund conservation—bonds, sales taxes, lottery funds, development fees, and more. State conservation spending per capita varies widely across the nation. Source: The Trust for Public Land
