WHO WE ARE...
In the Fall of
1984, a group of volunteers who had been working on an individual basis decided to form a volunteer organization. They had
been volunteering with minimal supervision and guidance from the Forest Service. The Forest Service had many needs which
it felt could best be met by organizing a volunteer association. The Laguna Mountain Volunteer Association was officially
born in the spring of 1985.
Operating under Forest Service standards, the volunteers have been providing quality recreation experiences
and educating the visitors to the Descanso District of the Cleveland National Forest. In 1986, LMVA officially incorporated
as the Laguna Mountain Volunteer Association, Inc, a California 501 (c) (3) accredited non-profit organization. Our core mission and purpose over the years has been sustained by a membership
with common goals and a deep appreciation of our natural resources and the beauty of our local mountains. Please sign
