Our Mission

The Southern California Mountains Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that believes connecting communities to our public lands is the key to their survival. We mobilize individuals to inspire and engage in environmental citizenship. 

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”.  

We connect through six programs highlighted on our navigation bar.  Please take a tour of our nonprofit.  We hope you get inspired and want to connect with us through your gift of membership by 'Join Now', or your time. Volunteer opportunities are available on each program page.  Thank you. 

Welcome to the Southern California Mountains Foundation!
