The Southern California Mountains Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that (1) supports youth development through conservation initiatives integrating environmental education, training and hands-on service projects; (2) protects our natural resources through adult and family-led programming; and (3) provides interpretive services that focus on outdoor recreation, responsible use, and stewardship of our natural environment. The Mountains Foundation achieves its mission by raising money, organizing critical volunteer resources, and creating and managing programs focused on health, stewardship and sustainability of our Southern California mountains and urban “forests”.
Volunteers are needed to help restore damaged lands throughout the San Bernardino National Forest. Youth and adult volunteers help with seed collection, native seed propagation, care for greenhouse facilities, plant trees, remove invasive weeds, monitor and care for restoration sites.
