Join the effort to call on President Biden and Congress to expand Northern California’s Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument to include Molok Luyuk. Molok Luyuk (pronounced “Ma.lok/ Lue.yoke”) means “Condor Ridge” in the Patwin language. These public lands are located on the eastern edge of the current monument and are sacred to the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation.

Protecting Molok Luyuk will help preserve biodiversity and allow for continued wildlife migration in the midst of a changing climate. These lands serve as a critical corridor between the existing monument and other protected areas for species such as tule elk, mountain lions, and black bears. It is also home to dozens of rare plant species. Molok Luyuk deserves permanent protection.
