Volunteers will be working with individuals from the National Park Service and the Santa Monica Mtns Fund to repair trails burned in the Woolsey Fire of 2018. After the fire soils no longer held together by plant roots covered up trails throughout Zuma Canyon. The recent rains eroded many trails and allowed for plant regrowth to hide the trail corridor. Using hand tools, we will redefine and reshape hiking trails so that the public may once again enjoy the canyon. This work not only improves public access and safety, but it also protects recovering vegetation by clearly defining trail boundaries.
What to know: You may walk 1- 2 miles with your backpack and a tool! You will be swinging a hand tool repetitively, it is hard work but many come to think of it as fun 🙂 Safety is paramount, you will likely be asked to wear a hard hat.
What to wear: Sturdy shoes or boots (closed toe only); wear long pants (NO SHORTS) and long sleeve shirt
What to bring: Backpack, reusable water bottle, sunscreen, gloves (if you have them), hat and a snack
