The Santa Monica Mountains Fund Spring Celebration in Calabasas takes place Sunday, June 9,⋅5 to 7 p.m. at the Anthony C. Beilenson Interagency Visitors Center at King Gillette Ranch, 26800 Mulholland Hwy, in Calabasas.
Come celebrate the renewal and rebirth in the mountains, where the Woolsey Fire raged last November, destroying 88% of the National Park Service land within the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. The fire wiped out miles of trails, wildlife habitat, Western Town at Paramount Ranch, multiple ranger houses, the Rocky Oaks archives building and more. The road to recovery is a long and difficult journey, but progress is being made. The glorious green hillsides and wild flowers after the rain offer hope at a difficult time. Event features small plates, drinks, music and a silent auction.
Ranger-guided tours at Paramount Ranch or Rancho Sierra Vista/Satwiwa before the event start at 3 p.m. and include a short walk and talk, taking in the views and learning the rich history of the sites.
A $100 donation ($82.50 tax deductible) reserves your spot. SAMOFund.org/Spring-Celebration
