CONNECTING COMMUNITIES TO PUBLIC LANDS IS KEY TO THEIR SURVIVAL

We mobilize individuals to inspire and engage in environmental citizenship.

Support our Public Lands

We treasure our supporters and the work you do every year! From volunteers and donors to staff and board members, we are honored by your commitment to our efforts. Public Lands benefit each and every one of us on a daily, monthly and annual basis. These local treasures provide both physical and mental benefits – from clean air and water to places that bring us the joys of recreation, gathering, play, solitude, beauty, and respite.

People need public land—and for almost 25 years, The Southern California Mountains Foundation has worked to protect it. Through conservation initiatives, innovative environmental education, and the operation of the largest discovery center and local corps serving the Inland Empire, we empower people to learn and protect the San Bernardino National Forest.

Music in the Mountains Tickets are now available.
