When retired Marine Corps General Anthony Jackson took over as head of California's parks system in 2012, he promised to help "win back the public's trust" after revelations of financial mismanagement undermined the department's credibility. How are the parks faring today? What's the state of your favorite state park?

Host: Dave Iverson

Guests:

  • Anthony Jackson, director of the California State Parks Department
  • Elizabeth Goldstein, president of the California State Parks Foundation
  • Ken Wiseman, executive director of Parks Forward, a new state commission set up to analyze and overhaul the park system
