Today we added the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area which is sponsored by the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy. Hidden in plain sight from Los Angeles, the Santa Monica Mountains offer easy access to surprisingly wild places. Experience the famous beaches of Malibu or explore more than 500 miles of trails. The park abounds with historical and cultural sites, from old movie ranches to Native American centers.
We also added the Feather River Recreation & Park District, which encompasses an area of 730 square miles in South-eastern Butte County, California. Along with the greater Oroville area, other District communities include Palermo, Bangor, and Honcut in the valley, and the mountain areas of Berry Creek, Feather Falls, Forbestown, Pentz, and Concow.
And, Olompali State Park, which overlooks the Petaluma River and San Pablo Bay from the east-facing slopes of 1,558 foot Mount Burdell. The name “olompali” comes from the Miwok language and may be translated as “southern village” or “southern people.” The Coast Miwok inhabited at least one site within the area of the present-day park continuously from as early as 6,000 BC, until the early 1850s.
