Press Statement by Claudia Viek, CEO, CAMEO
Support for the Sand to Snow, Mojave Trails, and Castle Mountains to be designated as national monuments on the heels of the October 13th Whitewater, CA public listening session
California’s Mojave Desert has over a million visitors a year. Regional microbusinesses – shops, artisans, outdoor recreation guides – depend on the area’s natural resources for their livelihood. And those businesses are a major source of job creation for the area. That’s why I believe the Sand to Snow, Mojave Trails, and Castle Mountains should be designated as national monuments to preserve these rich landscapes and support the regional economy.
