Existing law establishes in state government the Natural Resources Agency, consisting of various entities, including the Department of Parks and Recreation, the California Coastal Commission, and the State Coastal Conservancy.

This bill would express the intent of the Legislature to subsequently enact legislation that would improve access to nature for all people in the state and provide for recreational and educational opportunities, with a specific emphasis on increasing access for economically disadvantaged communities.
