COSCA Volunteer Corps: Adopt-A-Trail

The Adopt-A-Trail program is part of the COSCA (Conejo Open Space Conservation Agency) Volunteer Corps. This program is designed to encourage local participation in the on-going maintenance and building of public trails and related improvements through the "adoption" of specific trails, or portions thereof, by an individual, group or organization (Sponsors). Sponsors agree to be responsible for the maintenance and/or development of a trail or a trail segment located within the Conejo Open Space system. The work on the adopted trail or trail segment may be performed directly by the adopting Sponsors or funds may be donated specifically for this purpose.

The program requires an orientation/safety session and a minimum one-year commitment to get started. All sponsors and volunteers will be recognized for their contributions at an annual volunteer recognition event. Additional recognition may be provided according to COSCA's Gift Policy.

Currently, at least 28 Conejo Open Space trails have been adopted, and more are available. This is a great opportunity for local trail users to give something back to our wonderful open space. Groups or persons interested in adopting a trail should contact the Adopt-a-Trail Coordinator, Rick Koppel at (805) 523-1580 or at adoptatrail@cosf.org.

See the current Volunteer Manual for a more detailed description of the volunteer programs. Adopt-A-Trail is described starting on page 9.
