state park closure http://kalw.org en Volunteers and private funding keeping some parks open http://kalw.org/post/volunteers-and-private-funding-keeping-some-parks-open <p>Just 47 miles north of San Francisco, a country road winds through the small town of Glen Ellen, where a sign directs you to Jack London State Historic Park.</p><p>Bob Ruether is a docent at the park. He guides me along trails lined with ancient manzanita trees, where everything is still. It&rsquo;s like walking through a painting. The air is damp from an early morning rain. Down a hill a group of teenage boys from a halfway house pull out sandwiches and sit at a bench with their teacher.</p> Tue, 26 Jun 2012 00:08:37 +0000 Leila Day 12673 at http://kalw.org Volunteers and private funding keeping some parks open
