The San Gabriel National Monument was designated by President Obama in October 2014, as a direct result of our efforts over the years to secure additional protections for this region. It was a great victory for San Gabriel Mountains Forever and we are actively participating in the development of the management plan for the new monument— to improve access, recreational amenities, our rivers and habitat. We also see the monument designation as an opportunity to help guide future efforts.

Important!! There is much more to be done. We are working with our elected representatives on federal legislation for further protection. . . Learn more.
