This was the fourth annual Sat’wiwa Round Mountain Restoration Project. The object of this ongoing project is to restore and maintain the Round Mountain Tail on the CSUCI Campus. There were approximately 50 CSUCI student volunteers, thirteen SMMTC volunteers and three Trail Corps members.
The SMMTC trail crew and the CSUCI Trail Corps met at the trail head on Round Mountain Road. Held project briefings and safety talk. Four of the SMMTC crew deployed with gas power tools, followed by a few others to begin work on the trails. The Trail Corps and remaining SMMTC crew remained at the trail head to meet with the student volunteers..
Student/facility volunteers arrived at the trail head. Opening ceremonies, introductions and Chumash blessing were conducted. The volunteers were divided into two equal sized groups. Group one was further divided into three crews for work assignments. One small crew of 6, was assigned to invasive plant removal. The other two crews of approximately 12 volunteers each were assigned to perform trail clean-up. The small crew cut and bagged Russian Thistle which was going to seed and seed pods from Fennel near the trail. The two larger crews raked up and removing cutting from the trail left behind by the earlier SMMTC work crew.
The three crew returned to the trail head and were replaced by three similar crews from group 2. These crews continued the work started by the earlier three crews.
All crews completed work and returned to the trail head. Closing ceremonies and lunch were conducted. All tools were loaded back into the trucks.
Sat’wiwa project complete.
Four volunteers transported tools back to the storage unit in Newbury Park and stored the tools.
