Some of the ways your support benefits:



Help raise a Phoenix from the ashes! In the June 4th Old Fire in Calabasas, the Headwaters Corner and MRT's headquarters were destroyed. Plans are in place to build an interpretive center and plant new oak and walnut trees. Your support will help rebuild from the ground up!



MRT's headquarters has a treasure....a treasure bank of native plant seeds carefully collected by Tom Hayduk, MRT's native plant propagator. Sadly, many of the seeds were destroyed when MRT's office burned. Your fundraiser ticket will allow Tom to rebuild the native seed bank.


Please buy your fundraiser tickets for a fun afternoon and support the Mountains!

The Santa Monica Mountains, a unique transverse range, running along the western edge of Los Angeles County`s LA Basin and the San Fernando Valley and ending in Ventura County, represents the collision of urban sprawl and the wild, producing enclaves that neither belong entirely to the city nor to the mountains.

For more than 30 years Mountains Restoration Trust (MRT) has worked to preserve, protect and restore this fragile ecosystem by offering responsible preservation and restoration programs, acquiring resource-rich land, and offering educational and recreational activities to the public.
