State Parks, Historic Sites, and Museums need your help.

Throughout the country, state parks, historic sites, museums, and similar institutions are struggling to continue operating. Because of general financial problems, many of these institutions are operating on a reduced schedule or in danger of closing. Some are being forced to sell off artifacts and property. Many will not weather these hard times without your help.

Places Earth urges everyone to support these vital and important public resources any way you can. Please donate your treasure, time, and talent. Write to your governor and other elected officials telling them to find a way to keep state parks open. It will be your loss.

Desert Shelter

Near the town of Bagdad, in the Mojave desert, CalTrans is about to build a rest stop near the entrance to the new Golden Tailed Kangaroo Rat Refuge. The Save the Golden Tailed Kangaroo Rat Association (SaGTaKRA) has successfully petitioned to be allowed to add an education kiosk and shop to the rest stop. The site is nestled between boulders and over looks the refuge. The site is slops slightly down hill. The parking area is about 600' long, but the site for the building area is only 100' long and 75' deep with sites for picnic tables to the sides between the boulders.

SaGTaKRA will operate a small gift shop with a small refreshment counter. There will be a small field office and small storage room in back. There will be rest room facilities open 24 hours including a shower in each and rest rooms inside the building. There will be a viewing platform facing the refuge. The picnic tables will be shaded. Adequate parking will be provided for cars and trucks. The rest stop must have a minimal impact on the site.

Support this Web Site

I hope that you find this web site helpful. It started because of my love for Architecture and interest in History. I don't allow paid advertising (but this may change). This web site is for your benefit and enjoyment and I make no profit on it. For ten years it has been supported primarily from my regular paycheck as a Set Designer and there haven't been many the last few years. I can no longer run it without help. Alternative funding is needed. A non-tax deductable donation helps cover the cost of operating this web site and may be made to Kesign Design Consulting through PayPal.
