Future of the San Gabriels meeting - short notice

Don't ya just love it when you get these meeting "notices" with no real notice?  This important meeting is tonight!  More information is available in this earlier article, but the gist is that the National Parks Service is considering thinking of making what is basically the Station Fire burn area a National Recreation Area (NRA). An NRA would better protect the San Gabriel Mountains back country, improve water quality, connect communities to the mountains and improve recreational access with a new urban parks and trails system.

Get there if you can and vote for an NRA for the San Gabriels!

The National Park Service is conducting a “special resource study” 
of portions of the San Gabriel River watershed and the San Gabriel Mountains.

Many people missed the initial public meetings because of the Station Fire. If you didn't get a chance to attend one of the earlier public meetings, please join us on:

Wednesday, October 28

Read up on Alternatives A, B and C and then come tell the National Park Service (NPS) what you think of their alternatives for the Angeles National Forest.  For more info, go to:
