Farewell to Shamane Morejon

MWBA Members,

It has been an absolute pleasure working alongside you all, giving back to our trails, and fulfilling our stewardship mission in the midst of the urban jungle. It is with a heavy heart that I must resign early from my term as President of MWBA due to relocation.

Resigning from MWBA is the hardest part of leaving Los Angeles, and I know we will make it through this pandemic as a stronger organization, cultivating a direct impact across communities. Thank you for the laughs, the views, and days of dirt church where I learned much more than anticipated. Looking forward to seeing you all on the trails again!

Best, Sha

MWBA Neck Gaiters

New Swag! We worked with our friends at Cutaway USA to create these lightweight, moisture-wicking neck gaiters displaying scenes from the Angeles National Forest photographed by Dustin Perkins. Constructed from a wind-blocking micro-fibre, this versatile accessory can be worn as a traditional neck gaiter, a skull cap, headband, face covering, or balaclava under the helmet. You can pick them up at Road Runner Bags in Los Angeles or have them shipped to your door.
