Historical note

The Conservation Association of Los Angeles County was founded in 1924 after a summer of devastating mountain wildfires. It was closely tied to the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce. The purpose of the organization was to promote fire prevention and water conservation and to give the chamber influence over public conservation education, technical advice to governments, and the shaping of conservation policies.
