The San Gabriel Mountains and the Puente/Chino Hills contain nationally significant resources, with some of the fastest growing mountains in the world, high levels of biodiversity, rare native plant comunities, and a long history of scientific research and discovery. The area includes a mix of resources that are not found in other national parks. The Upper San Gabriel River Watershed is significant on a local, regional, state and federal level. Funding for the Project will be use to remove 500lb of trash; remove rocks to create openings for proper water flow; plant appropriate vegetation shoots/saplings in designated areas to stabilze the stream banks and slopes; and to provide opportunities for substantial community involvement, raise awareness about the impact of humans on their environment through public outreach.
