Over 500 miles of trails. Over 70,000 acres of beautiful valleys, peaks and rolling grasslands that run through the middle of Los Angeles. This is America's largest urban parkland.
Santa Monica Mountains - The Wilderness of Los Angeles  is a hardcover, large-format coffee table book seeking sponsorship. The book will share the beauty of these mountains with their millions of annual visitors and open the eyes of the many millions more who have yet to discover this spectacular urban oasis. Sponsorship will be fully tax deductible through a donation to a non-profit agency - the funds of which would cover printing expenses. Each sponsor's name appears prominently in the opening of the book - something to be proud of as this prestigious project continues to make an impact over decades and generations.
