WEST HILLS, Calif., October  28, 2014 /3BL Media/- Every month, students from El Camino Real Charter High School (ECRCHS) Action Team, part of the national youth volunteer program administered by the Major League Baseball Players Trust and Volunteers of America give up some of their valuable personal time to help clean up Woolsey Canyon. On the second Sunday each month, from 9:00AM to noon, dozens of ECRCHS students gather to keep Woolsey Canyon environmentally pristine.
 
Their first time out, ECRCHS Action Team Captain Blake Sperling and his fellow Action Team members removed 2 1/2 tons of trash. It’s truly amazing what motivated people can do in three hours, and the teens’ passion for getting involved is not going unnoticed. During a recent Pep Rally, Los Angeles District Supervisor Michael Antonovich honored the ECRCHS Action Team for their dedication to the preservation of Woolsey Canyon with a commendation.
 
Now, Major Leaguers themselves are taking notice.  Local big leaguers, Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Rob Rasmussen (from Pasadena) and outfielder Kevin Pillar (from West Hills) will head to Woolsey Canyon on Sunday, November 9 to join the “action”. 
 
Volunteers are invited to join the Action Team on November 9. Woolsey Canyon Road is located off Valley Circle Boulevard in West Hills between Plummer and Roscoe. Follow the people, call Bruce (800) 345-6371 for assistance, or just visit www.thekuhngroup.com/woolsey or the Woolsey Canyon FaceBook Page. Drinking water and handy-wipes will be provided. All efforts are greatly appreciated. The amazing creatures who call this beautiful canyon home (mostly four-legged or winged) will be so glad you came!
 
Media interested in attending the monthly clean-up on November 9 are asked to please contact Bruce Kuhn of the Woolsey Canyon Project in advance at 800-345-6371 or by e-mail at bruce@thekuhngroup.com. 
 
The Major League Baseball Players Trust and Volunteers of America launched the Action Team national youth volunteer program in 2003 to recruit and train high school students to volunteer in their communities. Since its launch,  more than 73,000 students across the country and from Japan and Puerto Rico have helped  more than 230,000 of their neighbors in need through the Action Team. There are currently more than 100 Action Teams from over 30 states.
