San Gabriel Mountains Community Collaborative

San Gabriel Mountains Community Collaborative

As the nonprofit partner of the U.S. Forest Service, the NFF has a unique role that enables us to work closely with the Angeles National Forest to bring people together to promote the health and enjoyment of the new Monument. As part of our mission, the NFF offers neutral facilitation services for collaborative efforts that benefit National Forest System lands, and on the Angeles National Forest we're facilitating the San Gabriel Mountains Community Collaborative.

San Gabriel Mountains Community Collaborative Purpose Statement

Represent the general public by integrating diverse perspectives to identify, analyze, prioritize and advocate for values, resources, investments, management objectives and implementation practices that sustainably benefit all communities throughout the region, the Angeles National Forest and the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument.

What will this group strive to achieve? (Goals)

Additionally, the Community Collaborative will work with the U.S. Forest Service to achieve the following goals for the Angeles National Forest and the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument, while acknowledging the rights of all communities throughout the region:
