Working to Connect Angelenos to Nature

The Nature for All coalition, made up of local and national nonprofits, works to protect the public lands and green, open spaces around Los Angeles, and create opportunities for Angelenos to connect and care for nature. 

Beginning in 2000, Nature for All – alongside many national and state environmental groups – began working to build an extraordinary collaboration between social justice, immigrant, religious, veteran, business, recreationist, environmental, and civic organizations, as well as water entities and elected officials. Together, these organizations are helping to secure the protections and recreational access improvements necessary to meet the needs of over 18 million people in the Los Angeles region.

Protecting the San Gabriel Mountains Forever

San Gabriel Mountains Forever is an initiative of Nature for All, formed in 2008. The effort focuses on protecting the public lands and rivers of the San Gabriel Mountains to ensure equitable access to the outdoors for the region’s residents. Today, we want to ensure that the additional 109,000 acres are included in the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument in order to permanently protect these sacred spaces in nature for the local community, visitors, and for generations to come. Our allies in this initiative include the following organizations: Angelenos for Green Schools, California Native Plant Society, California State Coastal Conservancy, Green Latinos, Hispanic Access Foundation, Latino Outdoors, The Pew Charitable Trusts, and The Wilderness Society.
