The National Park Service is
conducting a “special resource study” of portions of the San Gabriel River
watershed and the San Gabriel Mountains. Our current newsletter presents several
draft alternative concepts for the area, each of which offers a different
collaborative, partnership-based approach to resource protection and public use
and enjoyment, while respecting existing land management and ownership.
We will be hosting five public meetings between August 31 and September 15 in cities throughout the study area. The schedule is listed below. Please join us at one of the public meetings to learn more about the draft alternative concepts, and to share your ideas, thoughts and concerns. Your comments by mail, e-mail and internet are welcome through October 30, 2009. DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO NOV. 16.

PUBLIC MEETINGS AND LOCATIONS:

As directed by Congress in July 2003 (P.L. 108-042) , the National Park Service (NPS) is conducting a “special resource study” of portions of the San Gabriel River and its tributaries from the city of Santa Fe Springs to the north, and the San Gabriel Mountains within the territory of the San Gabriel and Lower Los Angeles Rivers and Mountains Conservancy. This area includes portions of the Angeles National Forest, as well as many communities along the San Gabriel River. Many people, organizations, and agencies are working to conserve resources in this area to provide recreational opportunities, habitat restoration, watershed improvement, and flood protection. This study is intended to build on and complement the efforts that are underway.
