The San Gabriel Mountains provide 70% of Los Angeles County's open space, and the need has never been greater for improved visitor services, access to nature for our diverse urban population, and expanded natural resource protection. To address these issues, the San Gabriel Mountains, Foothills and Rivers Protection Act has been introduced in the House and Senate to:
1. Expand the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument by adding approximately 109,143 acres in the upper Los Angeles River watershed2. Establish the San Gabriel Mountains National Recreation Area for the San Gabriel and San Jose Foothills and the Rio Hondo and San Gabriel Rivers comprised of over 51,000 acres3. Expand Wilderness area designations within the San Gabriel Mountains by 31,069 acres4. Designate 45.5 miles of Wild and Scenic Rivers in the San Gabriel Mountains
We, the undersigned, urge Congress to pass these bills to ensure that our threatened national resources remain protected, vibrant and accessible to all- now and for future generations.
