Eastern Sierra and Northern San Gabriel Wild Heritage Act 2008

025_10_WildHeritageAct_233h_180_233

Project Description: "Each year, thousands of people flock to the Eastern Sierra to hike, fish, climb, horseback ride, and enjoy the remarkable beauty of the region's wild lands. Recreation on these public lands is the foundation of the area's economy. Residents of rapidly growing northern Los Angeles County go to nearby open space in the San Gabriel Mountains to spend time in a natural setting close to home. Our elected officials are acting now to preserve pristine, beautiful places in the Eastern Sierra and the San Gabriel Mountains as wilderness, leaving a lasting legacy for future generations to enjoy. This proposal preserves over 470,000 acres of spectacular, unroaded lands as wilderness, adds 52 miles to the national wild and scenic river system and creates a winter recreation area outside Bridgeport in Mono County." – from a fact sheet by Keep the Eastern Sierra Wild
