Local National Parks May Face Cuts
Posted by Carmen Herrera on Mar 10, 2013 - 9:50:25 AM

SANTA MONICAThe Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area may begin to feel the effects of the sequester with a potential $425,000 budget cut in the near future.

With no agreed budget deals that would cut $1.2 trillion in the overall deficit, funding for programs in national parks are in grave danger. In the case with SMMNRA, the park which showcases California’s history of early settlers, rich habitation and beautiful scenery, may lose some resources for their landmark and visitors alike.

A 2011 National Park service reported that the SMMNRA produced $26 million in the local community, spending most on supporting more than 300 jobs, and provided lodging services for visitors and residents.


Cutbacks would diminish programs and lose fundings for habitat research, preserving plant communities, and workshops such as Junior Rangers and Parks As Classrooms.

The SMMNRA stretches 150,000 acres surrounding the mountains and coasts of Los Angeles county with 500 miles of trials. Over 35 million visitors round up annually at the parks which includes environmental recreations such as hiking, camping, wildlife viewing and even surfing or swimming in coastlines.


Despite the sustainability of meeting the 2020 federal standard in advance, the failed agreement between congressional leaders and the White House on the sequester may impact the properties and communities surrounding the parks.
