Mitchell Caverns State Park, inside the Mojave National Preserve, was the only California park that was closed after
The California State Parks system has a reputation to maintain -- as one of the state's most inefficient bureaucracies.
|The Blair Ranch STILL uses this to graze cattle!!|
Grazing is allowed in the Preserve which borders the State Park. There's a fence surrounding the Park - with a broken gate that allows easy entry to cattle - but it's obvious that the land on the Park side is in better condition, plant-wise, than the grazed side. It makes me angry that even now, decades after the initial devastation by cattle, the depredation continues. And if you Google depredation (this link is about the payouts -- yours & my tax monies) what you get is all about wildlife....nothing about the damage perpetrated by cattle, sheep and their human exploiters.
