The Foundation for the Preservation of the Santa Susana Mountains

is working to protect and enhance the Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park

 

About Us

The Foundation for the Preservation of the Santa Susana Mountains (the Foundation) was formed in May 1974 as a charitable organization qualified under IRS ยง501(c)(3) to support the acquisition of land identified as ideal property for a state park in the Santa Susana Mountains and Simi Hills.  The Foundation was successful in acquiring land, and ultimately facilitated the purchase of 670 acres for what is now the Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park.

The Foundation organized the park's first-ever Santa Susana Trails Day on May 19, 2012 with over 100 attendees, many first time visitors.  Assemblymember Bob Blumenfield presented the Foundation with a State Assembly Certificate of Recognition for its "extraordinary commitment and dedication to the Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park."


Summer is coming...and so are our evening hikes!  The details will be posted soon on our Hikes and Events webpage with all the details.  See you in the Park! 

FPSSM is excited to feature artwork from the winners of our 2015 art contest.  Support volunteers in the Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park (SSPSHP) by purchasing an item featuring our artwork.  Visit our FPSSM Store for more details.  A portion of the proceeds is donated to the FPSSM in order to support volunteers in the SSPSHP.
