On Saturday, March 27, about two dozen volunteers took part in the Conejo Open Space Conservation Agency’s (COSCA) Spring Trailwork Day. There were a few CORBA volunteers including Board of Directors member Danusia Bennet-Taber as well as volunteers from COSCA and the Santa Monica Mountains Trails Council (SMMTC). The largest contingent were Disney volunteers, who get a free pass to Disneyland for volunteering to help the community for a day. What a great way to encourage and reward volunteerism – our thanks to Disney Corp!
We worked on the Mountain Creek Trail in Newbury Park. This trail was built last October during the Annual COSCA Trailwork Day by a much larger group of volunteers (see photo gallery). On Saturday, we widened much of the top section, fixed the drainage around a switchback and cleared out a lot of overgrowing brush on the Reino / Potrero Ridge Trail it connects to.
On our way back down at the end of the workday, we passed a pair of mountain bikers on their way up. In the few months that this trail has been in existance, it has already become a popular trail to access the multiple singletrack trails in Dos Vientos!
