Subaru presented its  “Ready for Adventure” event at Malibu Creek State Park on June 19-20. For every test drive taken during the weekend, Subaru donated $10 to State Parks. CORBA was asked to provide skills workshops and lead rides. Several people were taken on fun rides along the trails of Malibu Creek State Park. Cynergy Cycles of Santa Monica provided Specialized bikes on Saturday for demo and fun rides, and on Sunday CORBA’s Youth Adventures fleet of bikes was put into service for guided rides. Many riders had never been mountain biking before and were very excited about CORBA’s programs and services.  Also at the event were rock climbing, pet adoptions, flyfishing demonstrations, horticultural information, and more . There will be another Ready for Adventure July 31-August 1 at Huntington State Beach in Huntington Beach. CORBA will be there with information and skills demonstrations.

Topanga State Park General Plan Meeting CANCELLED

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

This meeting has been canceled. When State Parks reschedules it, we will let you know. Be a part of Topanga State Park’s future by attending a workshop on May 11, 2010 at Stewart Hall, Temescal Canyon Gateway Park in Pacific Palisades. The California Dept. of Parks and Recreation is preparing a General Plan and an environmental impact report on the potential impacts that the Plan may cause. The Plan will identify management areas/corridors and recommend goals and guidelines for the park that will address future management of park resources, land-use and development, visitor use, and operational issues. The Plan may recommend levels and types of use, capacities and visitation, special designations and protections, as well as location and type of future facilities.

It is important that the agencies hear from mountain bikers as we are key members of the park’s community and stakeholders in the park’s future. The first workshop was held September 29 and focused on the existing conditions and issue identification. State Parks personnel will present project alternatives for public consideration and comment at the upcoming meeting. For more information visit and check for future developments.
