Introducing the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument

Obama signing the proclamation at 1:35 PM, October 10, 2014.

Just moments ago, President Obama permanently protected 346,177 acres by designating the San Gabriel Mountains Nation Monument.
“I have permanently protected three million acres of lands for future generations, and I am not finished.” said Obama, prior to signing the proclamation.  “We have a responsibility to be good stewards to these landscapes”.
This is the 13th National Monument designated by President Obama, and we are confident that this will not be his last.  Our members contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to monument campaigns in recent years, and we look forward to celebrating more successes in the coming months and years.
