Thanks to those who joined "Giving Tuesday" on December 3. We raised hundreds of dollars in a single day thanks to the generosity of those who participated and support our year-round work.
With their donations and yours over this holiday season, we can continue to connect more people to nature and increase accessibility to healthier lifestyles. If you did not get a chance to give on Tuesday, it's not too late.
Please become a new member, renew your membership or just make a single donation, TODAY. Your gift is appreciated and will help ensure our irreplaceable natural areas are here for future generations to enjoy!
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that (1) supports youth development through conservation initiatives integrating environmental education, training and hands-on service projects; (2) protects our natural resources through adult and family-led programming; (3) provides interpretive services that focus on outdoor recreation, responsible use, and stewardship of our natural environment; and (4) collaborates with multi-agencies to help create healthy forested and urban communities.
We achieve our mission by raising money, organizing critical volunteer resources, and creating and managing programs focused on health, stewardship and sustainability of our Southern California mountains and urban “forests”.
Changing Lives in San Bernardino Our partners from Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water of Nestle Waters North America spent a few days interviewing our very dedicated adult and youth volunteers this past spring. This particular video (top right sidebar) shows how our Urban Conservation Corps transforms people's lives. These stories are a privilege to listen to and offer inspiration for the ability to overcome challenges. Enjoy.
Forest Care Wrapping Up Forest Care is currently wrapping up the program and processing reimbursement requests. Forest Care is no longer taking any new appointments at this time. Program closure is scheduled mid-December 2013. Thank you to everyone who participated in the program. We appreciate your efforts to make our forests healthier and our communities more fire safe!
