RPL launched on Earth Day, April 20, 2019, by combining a fun group trail run at Harmon Canyon in Ventura (7:30-8:45am) with volunteer trail building there led by Ventura Land Trust (9:00-11:00am). 48 runners participated in preparing Harmon Canyon, a soon-to-be nature preserve and outdoor classroom, to open to the public once escrow closes on the property.
