A collaborative effort by Friends of Mt. Rubidoux, Mission Inn Foundation & Museum, and the Riverside Land Conservancy to ensure that the peak of Mt. Rubidoux property is substantially preserved in its current state, reasonably maintained, and kept accessible to members of the public for their enjoyment.
Join our 1st Anniversary Celebration of the successful purchase of Mt. Rubidoux peak and Serra Cross on Saturday, April 12th from 9:00am to 4:00pm at the Glenwood Avenue Entrance to Mt. Rubidoux Park. Bring the family and enjoy the street fair with activities for children, food vendors, local authors, and information displays from participating nonprofits; "meet" historic figures along the hiking trails to the top of the mountain; attend the dedication of the Totally Mt. Rubidoux plaque to be installed at the top of the mountain recognizing our story and the story of our community as we came together to preserve this important piece of Riverside.
On April 11th at approximately 10:00 am Totally Mt. Rubidoux won the public auction for the .43 acres atop Mt. Rubidoux with a bid of $10,500.
This effort would not have been successful without the commitment of the community and the outpouring of support. We were joined by many of you and thank you for that.
CONGRATULATIONS RIVERSIDE! Our Serra Cross is safe.
Three of Riverside’s non-profit organizations, Friends of Mt. Rubidoux, Mission Inn Foundation, and the Riverside Land Conservancy have joined together to lead the effort to purchase the property and maintain it in its current state, in perpetuity. Each of these organizations individually preserves our history and the elements of our community.
All of this equates to keeping Mt. Rubidoux and our story whole and intact.
As a community member you can help to preserve our history and ensure the future of our story:
