Eaton Canyon Nature Center
Celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument!
On October 10, 2014, President Obama designated the San Gabriel Mountains a National Monument, stating:
The notion of a national monument is interesting because it reminds us that America belongs to all of us — not just some of us. My commitment to conservation isn’t about locking away our natural treasures; it’s about working with communities to open up our glorious heritage to everybody — young and old, black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American — to make sure everybody can experience these incredible gifts.
Attend a brief ceremony and picnic luncheon at Eaton Canyon Visitor Center, at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, where you will be joined by Cortada Elementary School students to celebrate the Every Kid in a Park (EKIP) initiative, which provides 4th graders with free passes to national parks across the country.
Free to attend with lunch provided. You need to RSVP to guarantee your spot!
