Sacramento - Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) has been appointed to the Governing Board of the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy.  The announcement was made by Assembly Speaker John Perez.

“The Conservancy has helped preserve urban parks and wilderness access throughout Southern California and especially in the foothills region of the 41st Assembly District,” said Assemblymember Holden. “I look forward to working in partnership with local governments and private landowners to protect and preserve the natural treasures of the San Gabriel foothills.”

The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy was established by the State Legislature in 1980. Since that time, it has helped to preserve over 69,000 acres of parkland in both wilderness and urban settings.
