Through cooperative efforts, tens of thousands of dollars have been contributed by various private, county, and state entities to provide programs, materials, labor, services, and interpretive displays within the preserve. The BLM and the Friends wish to continue this cooperative effort, which has helped to make Big Morongo Canyon Preserve-Area of Critical Environmental Concern -ACEC a showcase for the potential that can be achieved through partnerships.
