Help the Forest Service Design a National Memorial for the Saint Francis Dam Disaster

Help the Forest Service Design a National Memorial for the Saint Francis Dam Disaster. We are soliciting designs as part of a competition. The competition is open for 90 days from February 1 thru June 1, 2021. The Forest Service would like to open the development of the memorial design to the public, and other interested parties, such as amateur and professional designers, college or high school students, state, city, and other federal agencies, historical societies, etc. Those who choose to participate have an opportunity to influence and/or design the Country’s newest National Memorial, and the second one ever to be designated in California. We are following a similar planning and design process as those developed by the National Park Service, and other state and local governments.

Forest Fire Restoration Program

The Angeles National Forest is located within one of the driest, most fire-prone areas in the United States – where human-caused wildland fires are becoming larger and more frequent - significantly damaging natural resources as well as the important human infrastructure on these invaluable public lands.

Not all areas and resources impacted by these fires will recover naturally, so forest managers and partners have launched a number of restoration efforts intended to produce ecosystems that are able to adapt and thrive over time. Projects located within the areas burned by the Copper Fire (2002), Ranch Fire (2007), and Sayre Fire (2008) focus on forest or upland vegetation and stream or riparian ecosystem restoration, sensitive wildlife species management, infrastructure improvements, and other beneficial projects.
