We have a historic opportunity to permanently protect public lands in the California desert by designating Mojave Trails, Sand to Snow, and Castle Mountains National Monuments.

National monument designations for Mojave Trails, Sand to Snow, and Castle Mountains means that these pristine landscapes will be preserved for current and future generations to enjoy, and will continue to be accessible for traditional uses and recreation activities like hiking, camping, hunting and more.

This push for national monument designations is a ground-up proposal with over a decade of work by local leaders on legislative efforts to protect these incredible areas the California desert while supporting the local tourism and outdoor recreation economy. It has widespread support from community leaders, business owners, veterans, faith leaders, anglers, sportsmen, historians, artists, outdoor enthusiasts, conservationists, and concerned citizens.

National monuments designations will put a star on the map for each of these lands we love, and places we play.

We can protect Mojave Trails, Sand to Snow and Castle Mountains immediately as national monuments while work continues on the more comprehensive California Desert Conservation & Recreation Act legislation.
