Aliso Woods Trail Day with Laguna Canyon Foundation

06/07/2019

The Shimano Team partnered up once again with the Laguna Canyon Foundation to work on habitat restoration in Aliso Woods. With the two teams combined, the designated trail had 5 drains cleaned/reworked, 30 dirt bags filled and utilized for trail improvement, 1 new in sloped turn built, 300 square feet rammed earth to form a retaining wall, 500 square feet de-compacted, pot holed seeded, naturalized and brushed, and four temporary “restoration” signs installed.
