The U.S. Forest Service is seeking public comment on its San Gabriel Mountains National Monument Plan. In response, the Claremont Wildlands Conservancy has submitted the following comment, highlighting Conservancy insights arising from the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park's shared borders with the Angeles National Forest/San Gabriel Mountains National Monument.
As our comment notes, the CWC particularly appreciates Part 2, Appendix B of the current Forest Plan, which details program strategies that national forests should emphasize in achieving specified goals such as Reducing the Risk of Catastrophic Wildland Fire, Providing Outdoor Recreation Activities, and Improving Watershed Condition. These are objectives that the CWC supports for the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park as well.
Accordingly our comment encourages collaboration among the newly created National Monument and neighboring agencies and communities.
