San Gabriel Mountains: Our Partners

San Gabriel Mountains
The Wilderness Society is building community support for preservation of wilderness and rivers and creation of a National Recreation Area in the San Gabriel Mountains.

We are leaders in the San Gabriel Mountains Forever, a diverse partnership between:

  • Residents
  • City governments
  • Community and business leaders
  • Faith-based groups
  • Conservation groups

Working together

Since 2008, San Gabriel Mountains Forever has been building a network of grassroots supporters who care deeply about the local mountains that support more than 17 million residents in the area.

These diverse, unique partners include many community groups that understand the need for more parks and outdoor recreation opportunities. Their support of wilderness is part of their efforts to combat rising obesity and diabetes rates in their neighborhoods.

Common goals

San Gabriel Mountains Forever is focused on building the broad local and community support needed to achieve Congressional legislation for:

  • Wilderness and wild river protections
  • A National Recreation Area in the region

Through petitions, letters, action alerts, community events and visits with representatives, we work to encourage Congressional action to protect wild lands and improve recreation in Southern California.
