Glendale in Los Angeles County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Miss American Green Cross
Re-creation of the American Green Cross Monument
Miss American Green Cross represents an early awareness of the earth's fragile environment. Inscriptions around the monument describe early environmental concerns which are even more pertinent today. The female figure before a great green cross has her arms outstretched to accept the plea to save the nation's trees. At her feet are broken logs, depicting the destroyed forest.
Miss American Green Cross has been meticulously restored to her original glory, greeting visitors and sharing her very important message as she did so many years ago.
