The San Gabriel Mountains Forever coalition works to permanently protect the San Gabriel Mountains: to build support for protection of, and increased access to, our forests, rivers and parks; and develop a new, diverse generation of environmental stewards to care for our public lands.

What We Do

San Gabriel Mountains Forever is working for the protection and enhancement of our mountains, rivers and parks with access for all. We are a diverse partnership of local residents, cities, businesses, faith and community leaders, health and environmental justice organizations and recreation and conservation groups working collaboratively to improve recreational opportunities and safeguard our natural resources, including water. Over the years, we have worked closely with Rep. Judy Chu (D-Pasadena), to develop legislation we believe will accomplish many of our goals through National Recreation Area, Wilderness, and Wild and Scenic River designations.
