San Gabriel Mountains Forever (SGMF) is a diverse partnership of residents, cities, local business owners, faith and community leaders, health and environmental justice organizations, and recreation and conservation groups that are working to protect the San Gabriel Mountains and Watershed.

The SGMF campaign is working on two goals:

  • Permanent protection and increased access to the San Gabriel Mountains and Rivers.
  • Building a diverse legacy of environmental stewards.

The spectacular San Gabriel Mountains are the iconic landmark of the Angeles National Forest. It is Southern California's most accessible and popular "backyard" for millions who visit its clear and cold rivers, and its tranquil and panoramic vistas. The Angeles National Forest is also an irreplaceable natural resource that gives Los Angeles County more than 70% of its open space and provides our region with drinking water and clean air.
