Arroyos & Foothills Conservancy

A Regional Land Conservancy

Our Commitment

We conserve and steward natural open space and provide free environmental education programs.

The San Gabriel Mountains are a vast natural landscape that is healthy and fully functioning. The San Rafael Hills, Verdugo Mountains and Griffith Park are islands of native habitat that need to be reconnected with the San Gabriels if they are to sustain healthy and diverse natural populations of wildlife and native plants. AFC is working to connect these islands with corridors that will invite wildlife to pass freely from one area to another and allow these special urban habitats to adapt to climate change. We are also preserving lands in our foothills with the highest intrinsic ecological value. These key habitat areas are being strategically protected through land acquisition, conservation easements, land use planning and implementation, and education.

Our Misson

The Arroyos & Foothills Conservancy preserves land and restores habitat in and around the San Gabriel and Crescenta Valleys, thereby protecting natural areas for birds and wildlife by providing access and educational experiences for the community.

We work with urgency to save these precious places before they are gone, because they are a healthy and fully functioning natural landscape, unlike the San Rafael Hills, Verdugo Mountains and Griffith Park. These landscapes have become islands of native habitat that need to be reconnected with the San Gabriels if they are to sustain healthy and diverse natural populations of wildlife and native plants.

How We Make An Impact

Wildlife corridors connect habitat islands

Wildlife corridors provide passageways suitable for the movement and dispersal of wildlife, including mammals, birds, butterflies, insects, and native plants.

AFC is working to connect these islands with corridors that invite wildlife to pass freely from one area to another, and allow these urban habitats to adapt to climate change.
  • Secure lands with the highest conservation value
  • Provide education and outreach to people of all ages
  • Work with local jurisdictions to advocate for wildlife
  • Steward and restore saved lands and remove invasive species

Land Acknowledgement

The Arroyos & Foothills Conservancy gratefully acknowledges the Indigenous Peoples who are the original stewards of the ancestral and unceded lands we work to conserve today. We commit to collaborate with and include Indigenous voices in our work so that we may all become better stewards and build meaningful connections to the land.
