Members of SGMF spoke in support of the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument — and all national monuments — today before Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda Solis introduced a motion directing the County’s D.C. Legislative Advocates to take steps to protect the monument status.

“The San Gabriel Mountains are visited by millions of people that come from near and far to enjoy this breathtaking natural gem. The designation of a National Monument was meant to preserve and enhance the natural, historic, and scenic resources of the San Gabriel Mountains and the valley. Many community organizations and advocates were instrumental to the appointment of the Mountains as a National Monument. We cannot have decades of hard work signed away with a stroke of a pen.” – Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda Solis
