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.

The author was young when he visited Lion Country Safari. I am still looking for old family photos. The information here was mostly gathered from other sources. Thank you to the anonymous sender of a brochure that reminded me of this place.



In the 1960, there was a little bit of Africa in Orange County. Lion Country Safari in Irvine allowed visitors to drive their own cars through a large preserve of wild African animals, including Lions. Vehicles were required to keep the windows and doors closed and staff in Land Rovers kept watch for anything amiss. Soft top convertibles and other open vehicles were not allowed. Visitors would slowly follow the path surrounded by African wildlife. It is now long closed but a similar experience can be enjoyed at San Diego's Wild Animal Park.

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.
