The Park thrives with your help!
In May 2012 Valley of the Moon Natural History Association (DBA Jack London Park Partners) entered into an operating agreement with the State of California to manage Jack London State Historic Park (JLSHP) and prevent its closure. Our goal was to “save the Park” but with community support, the Park now thrives as an important resource for outdoor recreation, environmental education, wildlife protection, inspirational events and historic and cultural celebrations.
Our collective efforts demonstrate the significant effect local participation can have on making parks a relevant and valuable resource to the community. Our story is about turning a crisis into opportunity—creating a potential game-changing 21st-century partnership between State Parks and local communities.
Valley of the Moon Natural History Association is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, Tax ID #94-2412859. We receive no funds from the State Parks to manage and operate JLSHP, so your financial support plays a crucial role in keeping the Park open and thriving. Every donation goes directly to Park improvements, maintenance and administration to ensure that the Park remains a treasured resource for all to enjoy.
