Cost to pack state park artifacts will cut savings
State did not consider the cost of packing tens of thousands of artifacts in closure estimates
By The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' Shuttering dozens of California state parks to trim millions from the state budget will take more than simply hanging a "Closed" sign on trailheads and beach parking lots July 1. Many on the closure list house thousands of historical treasures that must be packed up, catalogued and stored if deals are not reached to save them.

California officials admit they have been overwhelmed by the unprecedented move to close the 70 of the state's 278 parks. They are working to catalog the important pieces of state history so they can undertake a massive packing, moving and storage effort should a deal not be reached to keep them open.

The state does not know how much of its projected $22 million in savings it will lose to packing and long-term storage.
