Foundation Members, Volunteers, and Supporters:
Hello! I have been thinking about you and your families and hope you are safe and staying healthy during these uncertain times. Do you miss the Park as much as I do? I am sure you do too!

We’re all in this pandemic together. I know it has affected you, because it has greatly impacted the Foundation. Please know the Board of Trustees and I are making every effort to maintain the vitality of the Foundation. With the Park closed, our staff are not able to work. With the Store closed, especially during peak times like spring break, we have and will continue to experience a significant loss of revenue. This is revenue the Park relies on for their programs and to help protect and preserve the Park's resources. 
 
Some of you have asked how you can help from home,
so here are some ideas:
Renew - 70% of your memberships renew between April and June. In addition to your renewal, a membership upgrade or foregoing a Park pass would further aid the Foundation. Don't you want to feel even more "renewed" when the Park re-opens?
Join Us - If you are not a current member, please consider joining our Foundation family. Your membership contributes to funding programs that help the Park protect and preserve its cultural, historical, and natural resources for generations to enjoy. Visit www.cnmf.org or contact me to learn more.
Give - The Park is planning its summer programs, such as, a new Jr Ranger program and their very popular, EcoLogik summer camp for girls. Any gift you are comfortable with will help supplement the loss of store revenue the Foundation needs to fund these programs, which are so critical to creating our future Park stewards.  
Check-in - If you know fellow Foundation members or Park volunteers, we would appreciate you checking in to see how they are doing. I would love to hear from you too!  (Plus, I have a few good stories about trying to telework with my 5-year old)
Volunteer - Consider becoming a volunteer when the Park re-opens. We need special people like you that care about your local National Park. You can start your process now by inquiring to cabr_volunteers@nps.gov or learn more at https://www.nps.gov/cabr/getinvolved/volunteer.htm
Advocate - Become an active advocate for your local National Park. Talk to your friends and family and encourage them to visit and to join the Foundation. Post on social media your love for National Parks. Post pictures of your favorite memories at Cabrillo National Monument. If you don't want to do the posting, I would be happy to share your memories and pictures for you. Let me know how I can help :)
Stay at Home - I feel uncomfortable suggesting this because I always want to see you at the Park, but considering the Park is closed, it is truly the best and most important way you can help.
To be honest, if there was ever a time to take action and support the Foundation, the time is now. I hope I have provided you some possible ways to help from home. However you choose to help, I sincerely appreciate you and am grateful you are part of the Foundation family.
As you know, we have at least another 30 days of closure and we will not re-open until we are certain that we can provide you and our visitors a safe and healthy Park experience. To help you stay connected, explore our Facebook or Instagram @cnmfoundation or the Park @cabrillonps to enjoy interactive posts and to stay updated on park related topics. 

Thank you for caring so much about Cabrillo National Monument and please know you are in my thoughts. Take Care, Be Well, and Thank you😊

Sincerely,
