Reviews for Southern California Mountains Foundation

Rating: 5 stars  

The Big Bear Discovery Center, one of six programs, within the Southern California Mountains Foundation is a non-profit that I can easily support.  They have a large volunteer base for staffing which translates to more dollars spent on actual programs.  The Discovery Center programs are designed to educate not only children, but adults about our forests and the natural environment.  They also do wonderful things to keep our forests alive and healthy through their reforestation programs.  The Discovery Center is frequently the first stop for visitors to the area as it provides a good overview of the area with displays of the animal life, geology and natural history.  There are trails just outside the center, maps available for additional explorations and activities for children.  Donors can directly support by giving cash or indirectly by participating in tours or attending events.

I've been both a volunteer and a donor for this foundation and they do so much good -- for both the forests and mountains of Southern California and for our children. As the volunteer arm for one of the busiest forests in the nation, the San Bernardino National Forest, they run the popular Big Bear Discovery Center and educate thousands of kids and adults about our natural world. Their AmeriCorp Urban Conservation Corps provide dozens of at-risk young adults the skills and education to be productive members of society. I strongly support them.
