Tonight at 7:30 p.m., the Arizona Heritage Alliance presents Postcards From the Parks, a documentary by Sam Jansen about the state park system in crisis, at Grand Cinemas Crossroads, 4811 E. Grant Road.
Arizona Heritage Alliance is a nonprofit "which educates about and tries its utmost to protect the Heritage Fund." The Heritage Fund was created by voter approval in 1990, and provided up to $10 million a year from lottery-ticket sales to Arizona State Parks. As of March, the parks no longer receive money from the Heritage Fund.
A question-and-answer session will take place after the film, along with a postcard-writing session to encourage the Legislature to support the parks.
