Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument was designated on July 10, 2015, by President Obama. The monument extends from nearly sea level on BLM lands around Lake Berryessa in the south, up to 7,000 feet through the northern Snow Mountain Wilderness and the eastern boundary of the Yuki Wilderness in the Mendocino National Forest. The monument offers a wealth of natural, historical and cultural resources, as well as exciting recreation opportunities for visitors.
