Trails Update

Sapwi Trail – Santa Margarita Lake: The March workday was rained out (twice) and as of now, no reschedule has been organized. Thank you to Ann Crain, Diane Kellebrew and Lynda Rasmussen for twice being ready and 
willing to organize food for the volunteers. SLOPOST contributed $150 for lunch, so we will be holding on to that money for the next workday at the Lake. In the meantime, Joe O’Donnell from CCCMB is working on the Sapwi Trail extension almost every Sunday and would love help!

Lopez Lake camp out and workday – April 28 – 29 (just in case you’re not camping at American Canyon! RSVP at if you plan on camping at the Black Bear Equestrian Camp at the lake. Potluck meal 
Saturday night at the Boy Scout Camp (short walk or drive).

Montana de Oro – 9am, Saturday June 23. Meet at the Park Headquarters above Spooners Cove.

Wear appropriate clothing (long pants, long sleeves, sturdy shoes), and bring a hat, gloves and water. Tools will be provided. All trail workdays have the potential for exposure to poison oak – we’ll do our best to give options to limit exposure.
