California contain nationally significant biological, cultural,
recreational, geological, educational, and scientific values.
(2) The magnificent vistas, wildlife, land forms, and
natural and cultural resources of these mountains occupy a
unique and challenging position given their proximity to highly
urbanized areas of the Coachella Valley.

floor to an elevation of 10,802 feet, provide a picturesque
backdrop for Coachella Valley communities and support an
abundance of recreational opportunities that are an important
regional economic resource.

Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, containing significant
cultural sites, including village sites, trails, petroglyphs,
and other evidence of their habitation.
(5) The designation of a Santa Rosa and San Jacinto
Mountains National Monument by this Act is not intended to
impact upon existing or future growth in the Coachella Valley.

National Monument are densely populated and urbanized, it is
anticipated that certain activities or uses on private lands
outside of the National Monument may have some impact upon
