Mendocino Area Parks Association

Appreciation through Education promotes Preservation

Celebrating 30 years of service in the support and protection of our local state parks!

Funding for MAPA's vital mission comes from grantors, fundraisers, special events, donations, memberships, visitor center operations, volunteers and our local communities.  This multifaceted team effort, along with collaboration of the Department of Parks and Recreation, makes possible the park improvement projects and natural and cultural history programs that inspire thousands of people each year, including the operation of Standish-Hickey State Recreation Area to keep the park protected and open for public camping and recreation. 

Thank you for your support!
