California State Parks Foundation hosts 16th Annual Earth Day Restoration and Clean Up

Each year, thousands of volunteers help plant native trees and restore trails and wildlife habitats throughout California.

On Saturday, some locals did their part too.

It was the 16th annual Earth Day Restoration and Clean Up day in Montana De Oro.

Volunteers met at Montana De Oro State Park to help fix trails, restore native vegetation, and repair the bluff safety fence.

The event is put on by the California State Parks Foundation.

"All of our state parks are our national treasures. We're so luck to be in California where we have 280 state parks," said Nancy Shillis, the Manager of the California State Parks Foundation.

PG&E also came out to help with the event.

"It's really more about our leadership as employees out in the community and making a positive impact on our community and of course on our environment," said Edward Halpin, a PG&E Senior VP.

The California State Parks Foundation is the only independent non-profit dedicated to protecting and improving California State Parks.
