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 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 be advised: river cleanup volunteers MUST be at least 16 years old and up. Due to the nature of bio-toxic refuse observed by volunteers from previous cleanups, we do not encourage young children to attend these events. Please see our event page for more family friendly outings!
