Service First work project improves Monument campsites
The Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service completed a joint Service First project this month to improve camping amenities on Santa Rosa Mountain. The project was planned and administered through the Forest Service, with funds acquired under The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) that paid for fire rings and other campsite amenities, with materials to install them.
The BLM provided labor support, through our Service First partnership with the Forest Service to co-manage the Santa Rosa & San Jacinto Mountains National Monument. This particular project was on Santa Rosa Mountain -- and within the Monument -- at a Forest Service-managed camping area. Generous help was provided by about a dozen staff and volunteers from the BLM Palm Springs-South Coast Field Office, HIKE crew, San Bernardino National Forest, Urban Conservation Corps, and Friends of the Desert Mountains.
