CORBA eNews for August 1, 2006
CORBA has been awarded a $5000 grant by REI to support trail work in Palos Verdes.
CORBA volunteers will work with and support the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy, the City of Rancho Palos Verdes, local environmental and recreation groups, REI, and individuals to ensure the success of trail work events. The grant includes tools, food for the trail work events, and REI products for prizes and handouts. This continues REI's and CORBA's commitment to multi-use trails. Thanks to all who have participated in past CORBA events to help us win this award.
The Canyon Back Alliance, the Center for the Law in the Public Interest, CORBA, and others won a long fight that threatened to block a long used trail in the Santa Monica Mountains. The deal was approved the LA City Council’s Planning and Land Use Management Committee. The trail in question is connects the the Whoop-de-doos trail and Kenter Avenue to dirt Mulholland and the greater Santa Monica Mountains. Thank you to all who participated in this public access battle. Your efforts have helped secure public access on the Canyonback Trail and gained a new trail that will connect Mt. St. Mary's Fire Road with Canyonback Trail—a whole new trail.
Sat. Aug. 19: CORBA Trail Work Day on Rogers Road in the Santa Monica Mountains.
We will meet at the top of Reseda at 7:45 am. If you can not make it that early you can always ride your bike in to meet us. Volunteers get cool trail work bike socks! For all details go to: CORBA Trail Crew Page.
