The California Desert Protection Act of 2011 Update
The Proposed Sand to Snow National Monument
Senator Dianne Feinstein's California Desert Protection Act of 2011 would create the Sand to Snow National Monument, which includes our very own Big Morongo Canyon Preserve, an area of outstanding biodiversity and recreational opportunities. Big Morongo Canyon Preserve has been designated as a National Watchable Wildlife Site and is a world-class bird-watching destination due to the impressive diversity (almost 250 species) of both migratory and resident birds. The Canyon's year-round stream flow is a critical water source for many of the desert bighorn sheep whose home range includes Big Morongo Canyon Preserve and Joshua Tree National Park.
The California Desert Protection Act of 2011 would also designate wilderness and Wild and Scenic River segments, create the 941,000 acre Mojave Trails National Monument and add land to all three desert national parks. All of the land concerned is already government land and the Act would serve to strengthen current protection, enhance recreational opportunities and promote tourism.
The purpose of this meeting is to provide the public with information about the Act and discuss future opportunities to promote this important piece of legislation. The meeting format will include brief presentations, a strategy session and a question and answer period. This event is sponsored by the Morongo Valley Chamber of Commerce, The Friends of Big Morongo Canyon Preserve, The Summer Tree Institute, The Wildlands Conservancy and National Parks Conservation Association.

The Sand to Snow National Monument, about 45 miles east of Riverside, would cover about 134,000 acres of federal land between Joshua Tree National Park and the San Bernardino National Forest in San Bernardino and Riverside counties. Its diverse habitats range from desert scrub to yellow pine forests 9,000 feet above sea level.
