The National Trust for Historic Preservation has released the list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places for 2010. Included on the list are America’s State Parks and State-owned Historic Sites. As states react to the economic recession, budget cuts are having drastic effects on state-owned parks and sites. Nearly thirty states have experienced budget cuts that have resulted in site closures, layoffs, and deferred maintenance. Although Iowa’s state parks are not included as prime examples, they are noted as being “at risk” due to the across the board cuts to department budgets.
