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.

Hollywood & Highland is an unusually descriptive and non-romantic name for the newest landmark in Hollywood, appropriately located on the northwest corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Boulevard. In recent years, the core of Hollywood has been declining and this new project is intended to improve the image and bring now economic opportunities to the area. The project occupies almost two city blocks in the heart of Hollywood extending west from Highland to Orange Drive where a symbolic small orange grove will be located.

Major points of interest at Hollywood & Highland include:
The Kodak Theatre, a 136,000 square foot theatre which will be the first permanent home of the Academy Awards show. The first Oscar Night was held at the Roosevelt Hotel across the street. It will be the world's only live broadcast theatre.
The Grand Ballroom.
The Hollywood Motion Picture Collection, a museum with movie memorabilia, including 3,000 costumes, furniture pieces and entire sets from movies spanning half a century. This 20,000 square foot museum is made from actress Debbie Reynolds' personal collection of.
Restaurants and night clubs.
Exclusive retail shops.
The Renaissance Hollywood Hotel.
A MetroRail subway station is located beneath with an entrance onto Hollywood Boulevard.
It is built around Grauman's Chinese Theatre.
