VISION
We imagine the Riverside community enjoying and preserving the Gavilan Hills Plateau, with it’s rare endemic species allowed to thrive and prosper without the seemingly omnipresent threat of habitat loss. This vision requires a shift in perspective from the short-term benefits of development, to the long-term value of conservation.

MISSION
Preserve the Plateau emboldens the local community to question and act against “business as usual,” in order to protect especially unique geography and biodiversity from being lost forever under sub-developments. Education is paramount in this preservation quest. People will galvanize to protect an area of value, but they must be informed that it is indeed worth more preserved than developed. This is why Preserve the Plateau will install ten national park style signs with smart-app technology to link locals and students with zone-specific lesson plans, in addition to preservation of the land and biodiversity of the Gavilan Hills Plateau. A passing hiker will learn key information that he or she is actually on a historic Native American landmark; a class of middle school students can do the same, or take a virtual field trip from their classroom, learning about the endangered endemic species like the Stephen’s Kangaroo Rat. Time and education outdoors, especially in a place as unique as the Gavilan Hills Plateau is a timeless, priceless, and necessary supplement to all the time us inhabitants of modern society spend indoors.
