This is an Action Alert from the Naturist Action Committee. NAC is
asking for your immediate involvement in an effort to have the State of
California create officially designated areas for clothing-optional
recreation in state parks.
CALIFORNIA STATE PARK AND RECREATION COMMISSION
The California State Park and Recreation Commission is NOT the same
thing as the State Parks and Recreation Department. The Commission has
specific authorities and responsibilities which are defined in
California law. Those include the approval of general plans for units of
the State Park System, classifying units of the System, establishing
general policies for the guidance of the Director of State Parks in the
administration, protection and development of the System, and
recommending to the Director a comprehensive recreation policy for the
As allowed by law, NAC and its allies have submitted a petition asking
that portions of specified state parks be set aside for
clothing-optional recreation. The State Department of Parks and
Recreation (DPR) has simply ignored the properly submitted petition.
Meanwhile, since DPR has chosen to make selective termination of the
longstanding Cahill Policy, there is presently no statewide or
comprehensive policy that addresses the responsible nude use of portions
of state park units.
NAC is looking for the State Park bureaucracy to assert some leadership.
The Commission has the authority and the responsibility to establish
general policy and to recommend policy to DPR, and that's what NAC is
ACTION 1: ATTEND COMMISSION'S PUBLIC MEETING ON DECEMBER 10
If you're in the southern California area, NAC requests that you attend
a public meeting of the State Park and Recreation Commission that is
scheduled to be held in San Diego on Friday, December 10, 2010.
DATE: Friday, December 10, 2010
TIME: 9:00 a.m.
Old Town Theatre
4040 Twiggs Street
Old Town San Diego State Historic Park
San Diego, California
Members of the public will have the opportunity to give brief
statements. But whether you speak or not, your presence is EXTREMELY
IMPORTANT to lend support to the message of naturists.
We seek the setting aside of areas for clothing-optional recreation in
State Park units.
There are few items on the December 10 meeting agenda, and the meeting
is likely to move quickly. Please plan to be at the the Old Town Theatre
no later than a half hour before the meeting starts.
If you're planning to attend the meeting, please contact:
NAC board member Allen Baylis
or NAC executive director Bob Morton
ACTION 2: WRITE TO THE COMMISSION
If you're unable to attend the meeting, you can still help. NAC asks
that you write to the Commission. Send your comments by e-mail, fax or
surface mail. Those who will be at the meeting on December 10 are also
encouraged to write.
WHO SHOULD WRITE?
NAC is requesting ALL NATURISTS and other concerned individuals to
contact California officials on this important matter, regardless of
your place of residence. California understands the importance of
out-of-state visitors who come to enjoy the state's beaches, lakes and
streams. The opportunity to provide diverse recreational opportunities
applies to those visitors, as well as to California residents. While all
are encouraged to make their voices heard, the participation of
Californians is, of course, particularly important.
Send a letter, a fax or an e-mail. Phone calls will likely be
ineffective in this specific context.

WHAT SHOULD YOU SAY?
When you write:
a) Be polite.
b) Be known. Give your name and address. If you are a California
resident or a frequent visitor to California, be sure to point
that out. Anonymous letters have very little impact.
c) Be focused. Keep your correspondence brief and on target.
d) Be positive. Remember that we're trying to ENCOURAGE the Parks
Department to do something. Please do not take a scolding tone.
e) Be clear. Say that you SUPPORT the petition asking for
designation of clothing-optional areas in units of the State
Additional writing points:
a) This is NOT just about San Onofre State Beach. Although that beach
was the first State Park unit at which DPR has killed its policy for
managing clothing-optional recreation, it will not be the last. The
present lack of a comprehensive statewide policy threatens ALL
clothing-optional areas in California State Park units. Consider the
implications for Black's (Torrey Pines), Gaviota, Bonny Doon and many
b) For thirty years, the Department's Cahill Policy allowed a means
to manage for clothing-optional recreation in units of the State Park
system. The nullification of the Cahill Policy has left the department
with no statewide policy to address a form of recreation that's
obviously popular with the public. The submitted petition proposes a
specific way to address the management of clothing-optional recreation.
c) Officials of the Parks and Rec Department have pointed to lewd
behavior as a reason for prohibiting nudity. In doing so, they have
confused simple nudity with lewd behavior. Rangers presently have the
authority and responsibility to stop lewd activity, and naturists
encourage them to exercise that responsibility appropriately. However,
that specific authority is separate and different from the legal
authority the Parks Department has to establish areas for

The Naturist Action Committee is the volunteer nonprofit political
adjunct to The Naturist Society. NAC exists to advance and protect the
rights and interests of naturists throughout North America. Fighting for
the clothing-optional recreational use of public land is expensive. To
do its job, NAC relies entirely on the voluntary generosity of
supporters like you.
