For over 20 years, Nature for All and coalition members have worked to permanently protect the San Gabriel Mountains, advocate for more resources for the area, connect Angelenos to this special place, and educate local residents about how to recreate responsibly. This work – done in partnership with many local organizations and residents – led to the designation of the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument in 2014, and has brought new opportunities to the region.
The effort I’m advocating for is championed by Senator Alex Padilla, Representative Judy Chu, and a coalition of local advocates and community organizations. We are asking President Biden to use the Antiquities Act to add 109,000 acres to the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument to permanently protect these special lands.
“The Biden administration and Gov. Gavin Newsom have committed the nation and our state to this ambitious “30×30” goal. Expanding the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument to include 109,000 acres of public lands in the Angeles National Forest will help contribute to this goal.”
