|We need volunteers to work a couple of hours on Sunday, April 25 on the Kagel Road
The Forest Service has received a grant to use for putting up fences to keep off-road vehicles out of areas where they are not permitted to go, or where they have caused damage in the Angeles National Forest. Sunday, Patrick Hersey, the OHV Recreation Specialist (see contact info below) is running a work party to put up fencing to prevent reentry of off-road vehicles into the illegal moto-cross track halfway up Kagel Road. It will involve setting corner posts and possibly other fence posts. That probably means digging postholes, pouring concrete, making the posts plumb, etc. I don't know if they have a post hole augur.
Howard says that this doesn't mean that there is a plan to reopen Kagel Road to off-roaders, refrigerator dumpers, and construction debris litterers; it's just that the Forest Service has this dedicated money now, and want to use it instead of losing it.
I think it's a great opportunity to show up with a little teamwork for the L.A. Ranger District, which has been so friendly and helpful to us. Howard says that we can work a couple of hours, then go fly. Howard has come to have a keen sense of what makes us tick as volunteers.
The deal is to meet with Pat Hersey at 0830 on Sunday at the Little Tujunga Canyon Road Ranger Station. We should call him in advance with an estimated number of workers, so he can gear up for that number.
