Thanks to years of work by California Senator Dianne Feinstein, two national monuments to forever protect the state's unparalleled deserts are in the making -- now they just need public support.
The Sand to Snow National Monument would protect some of the most beautiful and ecologically important lands in California -- from the desert floor to the 11,503-foot peak of Mount San Gorgonio. It'd also safeguard the headwaters of the Santa Ana and Whitewater rivers -- upon which hundreds of thousands of Californians rely for drinking water.
Designating the Mojave Trails National Monument is also a must if wildlife are to freely move, adapt and survive in the face of climate change. With a few changes, this monument could help connect and protect lands between Joshua Tree National Park and Mojave National Preserve.
