Interior Secretary Responds to Snow Mountain Monument Expansion

The president approved a 13,000-acre addition along California’s Inner Coast Range.

Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland commended President Joe Biden’s expansion of the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument, incorporating a unique 11-mile coastline into the protected area. The Molok Luyuk ridgeline, previously known as “Walker Ridge,“ contains a number of rare natural features within the 13,696 acres added to the northern California monument.

“Locally led conservation efforts are at the heart of what we are advancing in the Biden-Harris administration. Molok Luyuk is sacred to the Tribes who have long advocated for its protection and maintain a deep connection with this land and… it will now be protected for future generations,” said Secretary Deb Haaland. “Today I am honored to stand with the Tribal leaders, local communities, and coalitions that made the expansion of this monument possible.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For discernment for the president and his advisors as they assess public lands to conserve and add to national monuments.
  • For Secretary Haaland to be led by the Lord as she heads the Interior Department.
