Be a Park Champion

Be a Park Champion

A dozen volunteers helped us kick off the new Park Champions program at Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park (SHP) last month by helping us clean all of the tables and chairs that are regularly used by visiting students, parents, and teachers. It was hard work, but these volunteers knocked it out of the park and made all of our tables and chairs look better than they have in years! A BIG thank you to our new Park Champions!!!
