Tuleyome and Environment California have released a video featuring business owners who have taken a stand to permanently protect more than 350,000 acres of federal public lands in the Berryessa-Snow Mountain region of Northern California.

Last month, 100 local businesses released a letter calling on President Obama to protect this scenic landscape as a national monument.

“Berryessa-Snow Mountain is a national treasure,” said Nathan Weaver, a preservation advocate with Environment California. “I am proud to stand with these local businesses in support of permanently protecting this hidden gem.”

The Berryessa-Snow Mountain region stretches nearly 100 miles from the shores of Lake Berryessa to the flanks of Snow Mountain in the Mendocino National Forest. This landscape provides opportunities to hike, ride horseback, hunt, camp, fish, bird-watch, use motorized vehicles on designated routes, and enjoy motorized and non-motorized boating and water recreation.
