  • San Gabriel Mountains National Monument Community-based Trails Management Program

    The San Gabriel Mountains National Monument (SGMNM) Community-based Trails Management Program provides grants for projects and partnerships that foster local stewardship of SGMNM trail resources. In 2018, the program will award grants totaling $150,000, with individual grants ranging from approximately $25,000 to $50,000. All project activities must be completed by June 30, 2019.

    The Angeles National Forest and SGMNM are a tremendous resource for the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area. Together, they account for approximately 70 percent of the region’s open space. This wild and rugged landscape, only 90 minutes away or less from over 15 million people, is also home to rare and unique wildlife like California condor, spotted owl, bighorn sheep and 1,000-year-old limber pine. Millions of visitors each year take advantage of this special place to connect with the natural world and conduct a wide variety of recreational opportunities. This program is a pilot effort to enhance and strengthen connections between this remarkable public resource and its surrounding communities.

    The program aims to help restore and maintain SGMNM system trails to help protect natural resources, increase user safety and enhance public experience. The program will support diverse community-based partnerships that contribute to SGMNM Trail Management Objectives while also providing local education and outreach opportunities within the SGMNM that help build positive experiences and shape and sustain stewardship into the future.

    The SGMNM Community-based Trails Management Program is a partnership between NFWF and the U.S. Forest Service – Angeles National Forest.
