Protect California's desert with new national monuments

Action: Wildlife Conservation

September 26, 2015   Action Alert ID# 278

 

Rugged, awe-inspiring and soon hopefully protected. Join Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) in calling on President Obama to use his powers under the Antiquities Act to establish three new national monuments in California's deserts.

The Mojave Trails National Monument would link Joshua Tree National Park, Mojave National Preserve and 13 wilderness areas. Just two hours from Southern California's dense city centers, the monument would provide a refuge for explorers and a chance to see dark night skies, wide-open vistas, wildflowers, and a variety of wildlife.

The Sand to Snow National Monument would rise from the Sonoran Desert floor up to Mount San Gorgonio at 11,503 feet. The area's home to the headwaters of two of Southern California's lifegiving rivers, the Santa Ana and Whitewater. And many landscape influences -- montane, desert and coastal -- converge here to make the area a living laboratory for evolution and a hotspot for biological diversity.

The Castle Mountains National Monument, at 29,000 acres, would conserve the missing piece in the northern part of the Mojave National Preserve. The Castle Mountains were originally left out of the national preserve when it was established because of a large gold mine, but the area has since been reclaimed. The area is home to Joshua tree forests and unique desert grasslands.
