“During this especially challenging year, let’s be mindful of this unique time to appreciate the bounty that California has to offer and carry forward our current desire to get outside and enjoy it. Let’s take a moment to think about what we can do to continue appreciating our natural environment and ways to take care of this valuable resource. ” — DOC Director David Shabazian
