Vote for the Los Encinos State Historic Park 'SpokesDuck'!

As the efforts to save the historic park from closure continue, even the ducks on the pond are joining in.

With threatened with closure due to budget cuts, many local residents, business owners and politicians have stepped up to try and keep it open.

One initiative to raise awareness and funds for the park is the 'Save Our Duckpond' campaign, which hopes to assist the park in its efforts to increase support, attract new volunteers and help the Los Encinos Docents Association to raise funds.

Local children were encouraged to draw pictures of the ducks on the park's pond, and then ask parents and friends to vote for their favorite Los Encinos 'SpokesDuck.' To vote, and to see the drawings, click here to visit the SpokesDuck Facebook page and here to visit the blog.

Voting is currently open, and winners will be announced in the park on June 24 from 11 a.m to 1 p.m.

Park staff told Encino Patch that it was their understanding that the park would stay open until July 2013. The park received an anonymous donation of $150,000 in January, preventing its closure this year.
