President Obama designated 346,177 acres of the San Gabriel Mountains as a national monument last October. Officials for the Forest Service and the monument have invited public comments as part of developing a management plan for the monument.
There will be additional opportunities for public input on the plan over the coming years. The Angeles National Forest welcomes informal comments, concerns, and ideas for managing national forests and national monuments.
