Save Saddleback Butte!

Save Saddleback Butte State Park

While you are adding the AV High Desert Cyclists’ Fall Century to your calendar, take a few extra moments and also add another event on September 28 and 29, 2012:

The Tour de Antelope Valley Bicycle Ride

This event is co-sponsored by California State Parks, the Poppy Reserve/Mojave Desert Interpretive Association and Antelope Valley High Desert Cyclists. All proceeds will go to the Save Saddleback Butte fund to help keep Saddleback Butte State Park open to the public. Both rides are “fun” rides (not races). Helmets and a signed waiver are required. Click here for information and registration form.

The State of California has targeted the park for closure on July 1, 2012. You can help the effort to save Saddleback Butte Park by giving your tax deductible donation to “Save Saddleback” through the non-profit Poppy Reserve/Mojave Desert Interpretive Association (PRMDIA) P.O. Box 1408, Lancaster, CA 93584
