On the third Saturday of each month, VHC staff and volunteers join forces from 9 a.m.-12 noon to clear invasive (Arundo donax) plants, clean up trash and clear paths in the Ventura River bottom. River Restoration Saturdays are a part of VHC's ongoing efforts to bring the Ventura River back to its natural state and make it more welcoming to human and wildlife visitors alike.
Meet VHC staff at 9 a.m. next to the Main St. Bridge along the bike path near downtown Ventura (at Main St. & Peking Streets). We will gather next to the Conservancy's beautiful new informational kiosk. Please wear pants, long sleeves, closed-toe shoes, and don't forget sunscreen and water!
Please note: River cleanup volunteers must be at least 16 years old. Due to the nature of bio-hazardous materials occasionally found in the river estuary, we do not encourage young children to participate in these events. Please see our Events Page for more family-friendly outings!
