Mountains Restoration Trust and the Steeplechase Homeowners Association will build community stewardship while restoring wetland and riparian habitat along Las Virgenes Creek in the Malibu Creek watershed. Steeplechase HOA has committed funds and participation. Another six (6) adjoining condominium homeowners associations are expected to participate in the stewardship program. Based on attendance at previous Las Virgenes Creek stream restoration and clean-up projects, approximately 100 restoration volunteers are expected during several events. Several prominent leaders in the community have offered 60+ hours to help organize the effort.
