This really informative and comprehensive section will feature more FAQ as time permits. Thanks for your patience. In the meantime, please use the Contact page if you have any questions that aren't covered.

1. One of the most common questions that comes up when someone hears that Los Encinos State Historic Park was placed on a closure list is: HOW CAN THAT BE? It's such a special park?

Frequently, this is followed by the inquisitor grumbling about State finances, complaints about state government and representatives. After that, many people continue ranting, suggesting that the 'park closure' is just politics.

I tell people that I was not going to wait around to see what happens, that I wanted to make sure the park stayed open and that's why I'm doing whatever it is I'm doing when this coversation comes up.

2. Usually, someone then wants to know: How much does it cost to keep the park open?

Answer: Approximately $150,000 per year.

2b. The response to this answer is either: It costs THAT much?

Or: That's not THAT much to raise.

This amount is based on figures provided by the State Parks.

3. Next people want to know: What can I do to HELP?
