The Foundation reached out to us, Friends of the Desert Mountains, to offer assistance and exchange information. Friends supports the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument. We have received two opportunity grants from the Foundation for special projects and have been a resource for them at times. The Foundation does excellent work increasing both Congressional and public support for the National Landscape Conservation System and specific units within it.
