Legislation would honor trails’ activist
Assembly Bill 1927, authored by state Assemblywoman Sheila Kuehl (D-Santa Monica) to rename the Rim of the Valley Trail the ‘‘Marge Feinberg Rim of the Valley Trail’’ in honor of the late community activist, passed the state legislature and has been sent to the governor.
The 50-mile Rim of the Valley trail provides access to wilderness areas for the residents of the San Fernando, La Crescenta and San Gabriel valleys, including the Santa Monica Mountains and the Santa Susanas.
Feinberg, who wrote a groundbreaking master’s degree thesis on the concept of the recreational trail, worked tirelessly to enhance community awareness of the trail and to secure funding for its development and preservation.
"This trail is Marge Feinberg’s legacy to the people of California, and it’s very fitting that she be remembered when we enjoy its beauty," said Kuehl.
"AB 1927 is California’s way of saying ‘thank you.’"
