They believe connecting communities to public lands is the key to their survival. The Mountains Foundation works to bridge the funding gap from declining public land agency budgets and add value to our local mountains through stewarding visitor experiences with the efforts of more than 750 trained volunteers.
Music in the Mountains proceeds will continue to benefit the Mountains Foundation’s seven powerful programs that focus on conservation, recreation, and education programs; many benefiting the Big Bear Valley.
