EWB-OC is partnering with the American Society of Civil Engineers Orange County chapter (ASCE) in joint outreach projects with both the San Diego Zoo’s Wild Animal Park (WAP) and the US Forest Service Pacific Southwest Region (USFS) both in SoCal. Both of the outreach projects are designed to solicit EWB and ASCE members’ involvement at two levels. The first level is on an Engineering level to design small bridge railings and forest improvements (e.g., picnic grounds, etc.) and at a Volunteer level (Saturday or weekend activities) to help to physically install the WAP’s bridge railings and to make physical improvements to the Forest Service’s trail, grounds, etc.
We are currently finalizing the design of the WAP bridge railings and hope to have a joint Association weekend installation project in spring 2016. We are also meeting with the USFS in mid-April to advance our project development for the Wildwood Picnic area and for our first weekend Volunteer trip. Please join the fun!
