    Join us on Friday, November 17 from 2 – 4 p.m. to help plant trees and build a new kiosk at the Big Rock Preserve. Meridian Design Construction, Inc., a Ventura-based licensed contractor specializing in residential and commercial construction, has donated the design and construction of a wooden kiosk that will be installed at the preserve entrance. In addition, we have 18 young oak trees to be put in the ground.

    VLT staff will provide the tools and direction and volunteers will provide the manpower. Don't miss out on this chance to be a part of the team that will beautify Big Rock! 

    After we finish planting and building, join VLT staff as we celebrate our success at Leashless Brewing located at 585 E. Thompson Blvd. in Ventura.

    In celebration of Thanksgiving, Leashless is saying thanks to our community by donating 20% of tasting room sales to their favorite local non-profits as part of their “Week of Thanks” series. On November 17, they selected Ventura Land Trust to be the recipient of their generosity. We are certainly thankful about that!

    Ventura River Estuary

    Ventura River to the Sea Coastal Cleanup

    IMG_2209.JPGThe Ventura Land trust and Ventura Surfrider Foundation are teaming up to host the 1st Annual Ventura River to the Sea Coastal Cleanup. Volunteers from both organizations are invited to join us as we clean up trash from Ventura River estuary property near the Ventura County Fairgrounds.

    We will gather together at 9 am in the Ventura County Fairgrounds dirt lot and fan out into the estuary to clean, clear and beautify the area. Our goal is to clear out as much trash as possible from the estuary BEFORE the rainy season begins and washes the trash onto nearby beaches and into the ocean.

    All volunteers should wear long pants, long sleeves, close-toed shoes, a hat and sunscreen. Children younger than 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult. We will provide trash pickers, trash bags and supervision. You provide the manpower!

    All minors under age 18 must submit a volunteer agreement form signed by their parent prior to volunteering.

    Click here to print the form and then please bring it with you on event day.
