A large trampoline was found in a remote area of the Los Padres National Forest – CBS Los Angeles
San Luis Obispo (CBSLA) A large trampoline was found this weekend in a remote part of the Los Padres National Forest, and the conservation group is hoping to find volunteers who jump at the chance to remove it.
Bryant Baker, director of conservation at Los Padres ForestWatch, says he was hiking in the Santa Lucia Ranger near San Luis Obispo on Sunday when he found him. Based on satellite images of the area, he says he believes it appeared in the forest between late 2018 and early 2021.
The Los Padres National Forest comprises about 1.75 million acres of mountainous and coastal forests from northern Ventura County and through Kern, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo counties. It’s unclear how the trampoline was moved to where it was found, or whether it has actually seen any use – but either way, its existence is basically a big waste.
“Apart from being on uneven ground in a sensitive area, the trampoline is seriously broken and propped up on brick blocks,” Becker said in an email. “So we are currently working on getting some volunteers out to the site to take it apart and take it down.”
This isn’t the first time this year that a household item has been found on federal lands. In July, a Six piece sectional sofa They are found on a trail at Deer Creek in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. It had expansive views of the Pacific Ocean, and cigarette butts, beer cans and bottles found strewn about indicate that the sofa had seen some use.
