Nature For All coalition members celebrate the third anniversary of the San Gabriel Mountains National monument at Eaton Canyon with Cortada Elementary students, our Leadership Academy, volunteers, friends and supporters.
“The notion of a national monument is interesting because it reminds us that America belongs to all of us — not just some of us. My commitment to conservation isn’t about locking away our natural treasures; it’s about working with communities to open up our glorious heritage to everybody — young and old, black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American — to make sure everybody can experience these incredible gifts.” — President Barack Obama
Three years ago, on October 10, 2014, President Obama designated the San Gabriel Mountains a National Monument.
To celebrate, Nature For All will be hosting a picnic luncheon at Eaton Canyon (outdoor picnic area) at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains. Mix and mingle with our team of coalition members, volunteers, stewards and our Leadership Academy participants.
We will also be joined by Cortada Elementary School students to celebrate the Every Kid in a Park (EKIP) initiative, which provides 4th graders with free passes to national parks across the country.
Complimentary lunch will be provided; please RSVP via Eventbrite to guarantee your spot!
