Shingle Mountain was officially declared gone on Friday, February 26, 2021. The mountain began harming the Floral Farms community in January 2018, over three years ago. But thanks to the tireless efforts of our allies and community partners, the mountain in HISTORY. This fight is over, but the campaign to seek justice continues.
