Park funding remains a constant need in Chico, both now and in the future. Andrew has worked directly with city staff to create a tree planting program at the One Mile Recreation Area and lower Bidwell Park which had over 100 trees planted to replace dying trees in the area. Almost all of the work was performed by volunteers on this project.

As the city moves towards financially solvency again and reserve funds are replenished it is important to make our parks a priority. Andrew also led the fight to successfully reopen both park gates and bathrooms.
