Description
The Santa Susana Mountain Park Association (SSMPA) was formed as a non-profit group in 1971 to preserve the Santa Susana Mountains and the Simi Valley Hills as open space during the rapid urban development of the Santa Clarita, Santa Clara, Simi, and San Fernando valleys. The SSMPA has acted as a citizens' lobbying group to obtain state and federal legislation, local governmental support, and favorable public policy to conserve wilderness areas. The collection consists of administrative records, annual reports, event calendars, environmental impact reports, feasibility studies, legal and legislative documents, maps, meeting minutes, newsletters, photographs, summaries of court proceedings and governmental hearings, and related organizational records.
