We Light the Beacon to Bring You Hope

We mourn the loss of 500,000 people to COVID-19 in the United States.

Since April 12, 2020, Easter Sunday, Save Mount Diablo volunteers and staff have lit the Mount Diablo Beacon each Sunday after sunset and let it shine through the darkness until sunrise on Monday.

We do this to thank our heroes in this pandemic, like the brave frontline workers helping us get through this crisis. We light the Beacon to pay our respects to those suffering and those who have died.

We light the Beacon to help our communities lift their eyes to the light and nature. We light the Beacon to help bring our Mount Diablo area communities together.

There has been so much heartache and darkness throughout this pandemic, but we must keep working to come together to be the light and grow the light.
