Save a State Park…

Visit any state parks this summer?

We have several wonderful state parks and natural and historic areas in Arizona that are totally worth a visit… unfortunately, many of these sites are in danger of being closed for good.

Did you know threats to Arizona’s 31 state parks are greater today than at any other time in the park system’s 54 year history?

But there is something you can do to help preserve these areas…

AAA Arizona will donate $10 to the Arizona State Parks Foundation for each new auto, home or life insurance quote requested through the rest of the month.

That’s it.

A simple phone call.

A few minutes can really make a big difference.

All you have to do is call (toll-free) 1-866-298-1232 or stop by your local AAA office, and mention “State Parks.”

Need even more motivation to make that call?

  1. Arizona Highways Blog Contributor,

    Wow, it’s great to see our community’s businesses offering a helping hand to save these essential public spaces. Kudos to AAA Arizona!

    You mentioned above that “threats to Arizona’s 31 state parks are greater today than at any other time in the park’s 54 year history.” Aside from providing donations to state parks, in what ways do you suggest the public become involved in preserving these areas? I believe the most important drawback to tackle is public awareness. As a leading photography, travel and journalism publication, Arizona Highways has done an excellent job at spreading the word about the current threat to our state parks and recreation.

    However, as you very well know, there is more work to be done.

    In an effort to join in on the fight against park closings, I’ve created a blog, Sonoran Stomping Grounds (jestein1.wordpress.com), for Arizona residents that offers public policy reporting on our state parks and recreation. So, I’ll keep posted and link my readers to any Arizona Highways WordPress updates on the issue.

    Once again, thank you for your commitment to preserving Arizona. Your readers are grateful.

    Sincerely,

    Jake Stein
