  • BERRYESSA SNOW MOUNTAIN NATIONAL MONUMENT EXPANSION Act


    On July 27, 2021 Congressman John Garamendi (D-CA03) released a discussion draft of the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument Expansion Act for public review and comment. This legislation would expand Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument to include nearly 4,000 acres of federally owned land, the Lake County portion of Walker Ridge, known as Molok (ma.lok) Luyuk (lue.yoke) - Condor Ridge - in Patwin. It will also require a monument management plan within one year of enactment.
    This ridgeline and the surrounding area has cultural significance to Native Americans, is home to bald eagles, golden eagle, and tule elk. The unusual serpentine soil along the ridge provides a home for rare plants species including the adobe lily (Fritillaria pluriflora) and scythleaf onion (Allium falcifolium). The act will protect these special areas and secure recreation opportunities in the area while boosting local economies.
