California National Monument Legislation

Senator Diane Feinstein is pushing for Federal legislation or executive action to provide for three new national monuments in the southern Calif desert. It would designate new wilderness acres; add to existing national parks; designate additional waterways as Wild and Scenic and create permanent protections for off-highway recreation areas. These are places of historic, natural, cultural and scientific importance.

National Monument status would elevate the protection of one of California’s most diverse landscapes, as well as protect wildlife corridors between the San Bernardino Mountains, San Jacinto Mountains and Joshua National Park.
