OUR NAME

      Our full name, San Gabriel and Lower Los Angeles Rivers and Mountains Conservancy, is a mouthful, so we more often use the shorter name, Rivers and Mountains Conservancy, as well as the abbreviation, RMC.
      The full name deserves an explanation. The adjacent map, which shows the RMC's boundaries, should help.
      The boundaries and the name were the result of negotiations that produced the legislation which created the RMC. The entire watershed of the San Gabriel River plus the lower Los Angeles River are in the RMC's territory.
      Although they're not mentioned in the conservancy's name, portions of two other rivers are also included in the RMC's area. They are the upper portion of the Santa Clara River and a short portion of the lower Santa Ana River.
     Of note, there are other organizations which have names similar to ours. An example is the San Gabriel Mountains Regional Conservancy, a non-profit organization.
