Amigos de los Rios is a supporter of San Gabriel Mountains Forever
SGMF is a diverse partnership of non-profit organizations, cities, businesses, community leaders, churches, schools and other concerned organizations working to preserve Southern California’s most scenic and valuable natural resource: the San Gabriel Mountains.
Stretching from Santa Clarita to San Bernardino, the San Gabriel Mountains are the recreational “backyard” for more than 17 million Southern Californians. This majestic mountain range is the landmark feature of the Angeles National Forest.
The Angeles National Forest is an irreplaceable natural providing Los Angeles County with 70% of its open space more than one-third of its drinking water. It defends against climate change by retaining carbon dioxide, aiding in cleaning the region’s polluted air.

We are thrilled that the mountains have been declared a National Monument! Now we must work to make the improvements to the areas accessed by the public and protect the precious forest – this is a delicate balance and will need support from all the groups that helped make the National Monument a reality as well as the residents this beautiful area.
