California Proposition 68, Parks, Environment, and Water Bond


Proposition 68, officially the California Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access for All Act of 2018, is a $4.1 billion bond that will appear on voters’ June 5 ballot statewide. Proposition 68 will expand access and infrastructure in state and local park systems, provide funding for habitat restoration and water sustainability, and invest in natural disaster protection projects.


The unprecedented investment in state recreation and conservation will become a standard for other states to replicate. It’s time for the entire recreation community to mobilize and support the bill.
