9/21/2023 - New Bridge Coming Soon!
Many of you are familiar with our bridge near the Hill Canyon trailhead. The big news is that in partnership with the City of Thousand Oaks and CRPD, construction on a second bridge further up the treatment plant access road will be starting very soon! The bridge will improve trail access and give visitors the opportunity to avoid using the access road. More info at: https://www.toaks.org/.../construction/conejo-canyon-bridge!
New! Monthly Trail Work Opportunities!
In addition to our Fall and Spring trail workdays, we’re launching a monthly trail work program. The program will take on smaller projects with crews of approximately 20 volunteers. The expansion will provide more opportunities for community members to participate in trail work projects and provide COSCA the opportunity to address a variety of trail projects throughout our open space and trail system.
If you’re interested in participating, please register for events through the Conejo Recreation and Park District at www.crpd.org. Click the pink “Registration” button and search for “COSCA” to find event dates and locations. Each event will have sign-up limits so the number of volunteers is matched to the needs of the project. If you’re interested in getting alerts for upcoming volunteer opportunities, sign up with COSCA’s partners at www.cosf.org.
