Crystal Lake Campground Revitalization

After natural disasters (fires and mudslides) struck in 2000, the Crystal Lake Campground in the Angeles National Forest was closed. Now, ten years later, this largest urban forest in the US is almost ready to be opened for public use once again... thanks to the hard work of L.A. Works volunteers from the Kehillat Israel temple in the Pacific Palisades. Nearly 50 youth and families trimmed trees, raked, cleared campsites, and painted picnic tables for the weekend, and the result was over 75 sites are now ready for use when Caltrans ensures the safety of the road leading to the campground and the Forest Service opens the park.
