Grab a free Black Friday pass (before they're gone) to one of 116 California parks.

The best Black Friday deal around might well be far outside the mall. You can snag a free pass to one of 116 California state parks if you want to hike rather than shop on Nov. 25.

#GivingTuesday

Some of you may know that I sit on the Board-of-Directors (a non-paying position) for the Earth Discovery Institute. We are one of the smaller non-profits in San Diego but we do amazing work getting public k - 12 inner-city school children into the outdoors and feature education through environmental hands-on stewardship (see below). We are currently trying to fund our next fiscal year so if you feel like donating to a worthy cause today and you're glad Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over. . today, 'Giving Tuesday' . . . is that day! Think globally, act locally! We are also involved in environmental rehabilitation (like planting cacti for endangered cactus wrens), river clean-ups, and removing graffiti from national ecological reserves (people actually spray-paint on boulders!) to name a few. If you don't donate to our cause today, I urge you to donate to a similar local cause today; small local organizations like ours will be vital in maintaining habitat through this next presidency . . . but I hope you give to us! We're worth it! #GivingTuesday

Dawn Fluharty, pest control adviser for Arborjet, demonstrates how using a tool called “Quikjet Air Unit” to inject pesticides into a tree trunk to treat a beetle called “Polyphagous shot hole borer” (PSHB) that is currently threatening California’s trees, at the Sheraton Fairplex Hotel in Pomona, CA., Tuesday, November 29, 2016.
