Friends of Big Bear Valley's website -- our parent 501(c)(3) organization -- has great information about our mountain environment, animals and plants.

Here is a link to "Our Special Nature" describing the three rare habitats: Each of the 3 rare habitats host their own diverse species. Pebble Plains habitat and several of the plants there exist nowhere else in the world. Our valley’s Montane Meadows (i.e. mountain meadows) are unique compared to all other mountain meadows and host species that exist only here. And although Carbonate habitat exists in other places, it is very rare in the world.
