Join VLT staff at 9:00 AM on Saturday, August 7th, at Big Rock.
We will carry out a variety of restoration activities such as mulching, invasive species removal, and trail maintenance.
River Restoration events are a part of VLT's ongoing efforts to bring the Ventura River back to its natural state and make it more welcoming to human and wildlife visitors alike. We recommend wearing pants, long sleeves, and closed-toe shoes. Don't forget sunscreen, water, and snacks! We'll provide the tools, you provide the enthusiasm! Note: Children under 16 are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult/guardian. The guardian will need to sign a waiver.
