New National Monuments!

WE'RE CELEBRATING THREE NATIONAL MONUMENTS IN THE CALIFORNIA DESERT!

On February 11, 2016, President Obama designated three new national monuments, including Sand to Snow in our own backyard, plus National Trails and Castle Mountains.  A BIG THANK YOU to the many MBCA members and supporters who wrote letters and appeared at events to support this.

Read a Q&A document from the Department of the Interior about the Monuments. 

It has detailed information about the process leading to this action and what it means for each new Monument.
