35th Santa Monica Mountains Trail Days in Point Mugu State Park, April 22-24, 2016

The Santa Monica Mountains Trail Council is looking for volunteers to help improve local trails Friday through Sunday, April 22-24, 2016. No experience required.

Trail Days is a weekend for individuals and groups to build new trails and restore old ones. And help restore native plants. Volunteers can either meet on Saturday/Sunday morning and work for the day or alternatively, the park service is providing free camping on Friday and/or Saturday nights at the Danielson Multi-use Area located under the sycamores and oaks in the heart of Point Mugu State Park.

In addition to providing a great public service, volunteers will also obtain a better understanding and appreciation for local trails and plants, a chance to meet and work with some great local people and some outstanding exercise in the outdoors!

Bring lunches, beverages, snacks and water. Tools are provided but you can bring your own. There's also a Saturday night barbecue free for volunteers. RSVP for camping reservations requested by April 18th.

Campers will meet on Friday/Saturday late afternoon/early evening on the Newbury Park side of Point Mugu State Park (off of Reino/Potrero) and others will meet at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday/Sunday mornings. Additional details and register online at www.smmtc.org/maint/traildays.php.
