Sierra Gold Parks Foundation is dedicated to the sustainable stewardship of Empire Mine Historic State Park, Malakoff Diggins Historic State Park, and South Yuba River State Park now and for future generations.
Working in collaboration with California State Parks, we support educational programs and projects that enrich the visitors’ experiences and protect our parks.

Western Nevada County is home to three state parks - South Yuba River State Park, Malakoff Diggins Historic State Park and Empire Mine Historic State Park. Our State Parks offer 365 days of access to some of the most beautiful landscapes in all of California. They are places where both residents and visitors go to relax, recharge, and reflect. The parks also protect critical animal habitat and our watershed.
