CORBA PV Trail Crew
Join the team!
The CORBA Palos Verdes Trail Crew has been created to help the City
of Rancho Palos Verdes and the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy
repair, maintain, and build local trails. The city depends on volunteers
to do most of the trail work in the Palos Verdes Nature Preserve.
Cyclists have already volunteered many hundreds of hours to maintain
trails. The CORBA PV Trail Crew will provide a reservoir of leaders,
recruit volunteers, plan projects, and carry out approved trail work.
CORBA PV Trail Crew leaders who have graduated from Palos Verdes
Peninsula Land Conservancy’s extensive Trail Crew Program can now plan
and implement approved trail projects. You will be working under the
leadership of CORBA PV members with fellow cyclists and other
volunteers. Projects will be scheduled for both weekdays and weekends,
allowing more flexibility for volunteers.
It's a few hours of hard work but you'll be sharing it with others who
love trails. You'll have fun and come away with the rewarding feeling of
riding a trail you've helped maintain. If you have a special project in
mind, let us know. Sign up for email alerts
Our trail work efforts have given cyclists respect throughout the
community. We want to show that we are committed to maintain and repair
trail through volunteer work.
Concerned Off-Road Bicyclist Association Trail Crew has a long
history of volunteering to maintain trails in the Santa Monica Mountains
in conjunction with California State Parks, the National Park Service,
Conejo Open Space and Conservation Agency (COSCA), the National Forest
Service, the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy and the Santa Monica
Mountains Trail Council (SMMTC). More information at CORBA Trail Crew.
That highly regarded tradition will continue in Rancho Palos Verdes.
