Fossil Trail

Point Mugu State Park

With additional work done on Old Boney Trail

Our project for today was to perform maintenance on the Fossil and Boney Trails in Point Mugu State Park. We had an unusually large turnout from high school and college students and their responsible adults. On an unfortunate note, a group of high school students who wanted to participate were turned away with regret because they were under 18 years old and had no responsible adult. Also they were not equipped with water or lunches or any means of carrying same.

We had a request from the SAMO botanist to not damage a stand of cithara buckwheat along one section of the trail. The buckwheat was identified and care was taken to not damage any plants.
