How was the research conducted?
Hi James, to see the video of the speaker you may need to exit full screen or change your view settings
Wondering why one slide listed "republicans" & not other political parties or no political parties .. seemed unusual. why was it like this?

Thanks, got it fixed. Jamee
Samuel Roberts, the polling was conducted by phone and online, in English and Spanish between the dates of August 30 - September 1, 2020
Gae, we picked out tidbits from the full results. Of course the full results have responses from all political parties, or at least those meaningfully represented in the sample.
Wooooooo! San Diego rockstar Maria!
So great to hear from an Outdoor Outreach alum!!
That was beautiful, thank you for your remarks Maria
So meaningful to hear from Ms. Mendez Arroyo on the importance of bequeathing responsibility for the land to the next generation. Thank you Maria!
Thank you for sharing your story, Maria!
Your words are inspirational, Mr. Quintero! Welcome, and we are so happy to partner with you.
We are the keepers of the dreamscapes of not just Californians but people throughout the world. From the Southern California beaches to the cliffs of Big Sur, from the Redwood Cathedrals to Lake Tahoe, millions of people rely on our care for these lands.
Director Quintero, thank you so much for your remarks!!! we are so thrilled to have you here!
Thank you Director Quintero!
Thank you for your leadership and great vision for the future of our parks system!
how does the 30% EO work - how much % land is already protected?
I also am curious if the 30% includes only land protected by the state? Or federal lands as well? And how do we defined ‘protected’?
Director Armando Quintero
To Rebecca’s question about 30%. We (the Resources Agency) are currently working on both the definition and assessment of lands in terms of Biodiversity and Habitat.
Thank you so much, Director Quintero. Looking forward to working with all of you to achieve the goals of the EO.
Increased funding to build and maintain trails and regional trails for healing, exercise and developing a love and respect of nature.
What are big, out of the box ideas to meet the needs of parks and Californians?
One of our team members is a retired epidemiologist. We have been assisting our partner schools to look at outdoor education and the health impacts.
Thank you for that link John Roney
Thank you all! Dr. Razani, I’m looking forward to reading this paper. Do you know of any studies that look specifically at biodiversity in parks and health?
Dear Rebecca - yes, from biodiversity in the gut (microbiome), to more macro level
The idea that parks could receive funding from health insurance companies as part of a nature prescription blew my mind. How would that work? Thanks!
I'm crying happy tears "I didn't know I lived here"
Watersheds provide a unifying theme!
I am part of a volunteer group that operates one of the state parks. The value of our financial and labor is nearly $500,000 per year. I think many of the state parks have the potential for support at that level. I would be interested in ideas about how the department could increase administrative and financial support for volunteers.
Yes, Mayra! Thank you all for you work and sharing your thoughts today!
Amen to park corridors!!!!!
If anyone wants to reach me!
