Mountains Restoration Trust accepts mitigation credits from agencies like United States Army Corp Engineers, California Fish and Wildlife, Regional Water Quality Control Board, Los Angeles County, California Coastal Commission and local municipalities. These mitigation credits fund many of our restoration projects and preservation acquisitions across the Santa Monica Mountains.

We are aware that all mitigation is not created equal and have policies in place to thoroughly review mitigation credits with our Board of Directors, senior staff and general public before their acceptance.

After passing a general selection criteria and pre-approval review from our board, potential mitigation credits are posted here for a minimum of 28 days. If you have objections, comments or questions to any potential mitigation credits posted, please email kgaston@mountainstrust.org. Our board and staff will read your objections, comments and questions before final acceptance or rejection of the proposed mitigation credits.
