Come out and join the Conejo Open Space Conservation Agency (COSCA), CORBA, the Santa Monica Trails Council and other volunteers for the 22nd Annual COSCA Trailwork Day. We will be working on new trails in the Conejo Canyons Open Space that are now accessible because of the new bridge.

At noon, following the morning of trail-building, workers will be treated a thank-you lunch and door-prize drawing while enjoying the camaraderie of fellow trail enthusiasts!
