San Gabriel & Lower Los Angeles Rivers & Mountains Conservancy

The San Gabriel and Lower Los Angeles Rivers and Mountains Conservancy (RMC) was created by the California legislature in 1999 with the mission to preserve open space and habitat in order to provide for low-impact recreation and educational uses, wildlife habitat restoration and protection, and watershed improvements within our jurisdiction.  The Conservancy has no power of condemnation or authority over city zoning laws.

The Conservancy's territory covers eastern Los Angeles County and western Orange County including mountains, valleys, rivers, coastal plain, and coastline.


The Conservancy's board is comprised of 15 voting, 9 non-voting members who are appointed or are designated by virtue of the office they hold: local, state and federal.
