BERRYESSA SNOW MOUNTAIN NATIONAL MONUMENT

THE BERRYESSA SNOW MOUNTAIN NATIONAL MONUMENT EXPANSION ACT, H.R. 6366


On January 11, 2022, Congressmen John Garamendi and Mike Thompson introduced The Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument Expansion Act, H.R. 6366. This legislation would expand Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument by nearly 4,000 acres to include the Lake County portion of Walker Ridge, known as Condor Ridge or Molok Luyuk in Patwin. The bill would also ensure that federally recognized tribes can co-manage the land with the federal agencies, rename the Ridge to Condor Ridge (Molok Luyuk) and require a landscape scale management plan.

This ridgeline and the surrounding area has cultural significance to Native Americans, is home to Bald Eagles, Golden Eagles, and Tule Elk. The unusual serpentine soil along the ridge provides a home for rare plant species including the adobe lily (Fritillaria pluriflora) and scythleaf onion (Allium falcifolium). The Act will protect these special areas, secure recreation opportunities in the area while boosting local economies and honor its cultural significance.
