|Rancho Palos Verdes will
soon create a Volunteer Trail Patrol program. CORBA PV has
recommended the formation of a trail patrol for many years. It will be
similar to volunteer patrols from other open space agencies including the
Santa Monica Mountains based
Mountain Bike Unit. The MBU was
founded by CORBA in 1988 and now works under the National Park
Service, the California State Parks, and the Santa Monica Mountains MRCA (Mountains Recreation &
Volunteer Trail Patrol members will assist the MRCA rangers by regularly patrolling the Palos Verdes Nature Preserve on foot, by horse or by bicycle. The goal is to educate and assist trail users, report safety hazards, maintenance needs, and regulation infractions. Volunteer Trail Patrol members will not be able to issue citations or make arrests.
It is important to have members from all three user groups on the patrol. Peer to peer communication is the most effective way to education trail users and minimize user conflicts concerns. For years CORBA PV has called on the city to collect factual on-trail information instead of relying on anecdotal comments at public meetings. Your participation will help collect accurate information and lead to impartial decisions by the city council.
The program is yet to be finalized but volunteers will undergo training and commit to four hours per month. Those who are interested can contact Barb Ailor at info@PVPLC.org.
