Malibu Creek State Park signs burned in the Woolsey Fire

Docents volunteering at Malibu Creek State Park have launched an online fundraising campaign through GoFundMe to help the park repair signs damaged in last November’s Woolsey Fire.

Signs damaged include “information display panels and trail signs to help navigate the trails and provide useful information during their visit,” according to campaign organizers.

“Throughout the park, these displays tell stories about the park’s history, share the native Chumash culture, keep the popular M*A*S*H TV series alive and provide other information to the park visitors to help preserve the park’s rich history and ensure it is not forgotten with time,” the fundraiser’s description states.

The docents—officially called the Malibu Creek Docents Association—are a nonprofit, volunteer group. Money raised in the campaign is going toward the installation of 20 new trail signs and 10 new information panels.

As of Tuesday, March 19, about $1,600 had been raised, out of a goal of $10,000.
