2019 Fall Trail Work Day, October 19, 2019
About 80 open space enthusiasts came out to help fix up the trails in the Conejo Canyons in preparation for winter rains. Volunteers came from various organizations such as the Santa Monica Mountains Trails Council (SMMTC), the Concerned Off-Road Bicyclists Association (CORBA), the El Camino Real charter high school mountain bike team, various Meetup groups and others. The CORBA crew added drains to natural dips in the Hill Canyon Trail so they wouldn’t become muddy bogs when it rains. The other folks hiked up the Canyon Overlook Trail to fill in ruts and remove loose rocks. At noon, the volunteers were rewarded with a taco lunch and prize give-away to thank them for their hard work and generosity in donating their time to open space improvement.
COSF, COSCA and the other organizations would like to give a hearty thank-you to all the volunteers! View COSCA’s promotional flyer.
Here is a gallery of photos of some of the work that was done.
COSF contributed by paying for the lunch and supplying the breakfast snacks, as well as helping to recruit volunteers. We would like to thank our donors and members who make our contribution possible!
