At an SGMF retreat this November, at the Eaton Canyon Nature Park, we discussed ways in which volunteers help us achieve our goals to protect and improve the San Gabriel Mountains and region. Joining us were members of the Stewards of the San Gabriel Mountains, which includes graduates of our Leadership Academy, as well as volunteers from COFEM, one of our member organizations. During the month of Thanksgiving, it’s an especially fitting time to offer thanks to those past, present—and future—volunteers who help us with these efforts. Interested in getting involved?
