Spring Celebration Success!

We were delighted to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area and the Fund’s 30th birthday on Sunday June 3rd. Supervisor Linda ParksSenator Henry Stern and Senator Ben Allen made heartfelt speeches about the importance of the mountains to our communities. SAMO Youth alumni inspired us with how this youth mentoring program has helped them with life skills, personal growth and love of nature. We were privileged to honor Jim Hines for his many years of advocating for public lands as well as the wonderful Ballard family. Tracy Esposito‘s comedy and music by Hyps ensured it was a birthday party to remember!
