On Wednesday, April 19th, 2017 California State Parks Director, Lisa Mangat and ACE CEO and founder, Chris Baker met at the site of an ongoing project in Garrapata State Park.
This project marks the beginning of a partnership between California State Parks and ACE, a partnership which both parties hope to maintain for the years to come.
The visit allowed for ACE California Assistant Director, Eric Robertson, and Chris Baker to review the progress that has been made over the last several months, as well as outline the work that will continue into the summer of 2017.
Lisa Mangat met members of the trails crew and learned a little bit about each of their backgrounds. The ACE trail crew has been working closely with the California State Parks trail crew building wooden steps, as well as a multi-tier retaining wall which will serve as a lookout.
