For more than a year, you’ve heard from Conservation Alabama, our members, and our partners about the importance of our state parks. You’ve written your state representative, state senator, and the governor asking them to protect our parks. And you celebrated with us on April 20 when the House passed Senate Bill 260, guaranteeing that voters will have the chance to vote YES for our parks in November.
So what now?
Election Day is Tuesday, November 8. As temperatures climb and we head into the summer it may seem hard to believe, but before you know it, it will be time to go to the polls in support of our state parks. The constitutional amendment that was called for by SB 260 will be on the ballot, and we encourage you to vote YES so that the funding earned by and allocated to state parks is spent only on parks.
Conservation Alabama will be traveling across the state this summer sharing information about our parks and the enormous value they contribute, not only to our ecosystem, but also to our economy. We’ll be meeting with people that love our state parks, including birders, cyclists, and hikers, as well as the towns that rely on park visitors for their economic health. Our goal is the same as it was in 2015 when attacks on our parks first started: to make sure each Alabamian knows how important it is to protect our parks.
