Our Mission

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”.

Wilderness 50 Celebration
The Legacy Continues . . .

On September 27, 2014, National Public Lands Day, the nation's largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands, and fifty years after the signing of the historic Wilderness Act, the nonprofit Southern California Mountains Foundation hosted over 250 Americans gathered for a Wilderness 50 Celebration and tour of the San Gorgonio Wilderness Area on the San Bernardino National Forest.   

The event aimed to be one of the largest Wilderness 50 Celebrations in the country; and, culminated in its participants signing a Proclamation to be delivered to President Obama and U.S. Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell pledging to support another 50 years of wilderness protection.
