Event Details

Great Outdoors is hosting a speaker presentation, via Zoom, on the proposed Chuckwalla National Monument to protect and sustainably preserve our local desert ecology in perpetuity.

We are pleased to have for our speakers series Andrea Iniguez, California Wilderness Coalition (CWC), Riverside County Public Lands Fellow and Linda Castro, Assistant Policy Director for California Wilderness Coalition.

Momentum is building to create a new national monument in the California desert!

Conservation partners are working to preserve this region by establishing a new national monument, expanding wilderness areas, and designating a new wild and scenic river. The public lands legislative proposal is being organized to honor and recognize the Indigenous cultural histories of the Iviatim, Kwatsáan, Maarrenga’yam, Nüwü, Pipa Aha Macav (the Cahuilla, Chemehuevi, Mojave, Quechan, & Serrano) peoples; increase access to world-class nature for local residents and visitors; protect fragile desert wildlife and facilitate habitat connectivity; and help boost local economies. The California deserts are important habitat for an incredible number of imperiled and rare species, and almost the entirety of the proposed monument is critical habitat for the threatened desert tortoise.
