The Carrizo Plain National Monument holds the distinction of being universally supported by the surrounding communities. A place that hundreds of thousands of people from around the state and the country visit to witness wildflower superblooms unlike any other place on Earth, the Carrizo Plain is a boon to local economies. For this reason and its ecological, archaeological, and spiritual significance, thousands of letters of support for the national monument have poured in since it came under review, including those from elected officials and local businesses. Below are some of the Carrizo Plain's biggest supporters. Want to add your business?
