We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that (1) supports youth development through conservation initiatives integrating environmental education, training and hands-on service projects; (2) protects our natural resources through adult and family-led programming; (3) provides interpretive services that focus on outdoor recreation, responsible use, and stewardship of our natural environment; and (4) collaborates with multi-agencies to help create healthy forested and urban communities.
We achieve our mission by raising money, organizing critical volunteer resources, and creating and managing programs focused on health, stewardship and sustainability of our Southern California mountains and urban "forests”.
