Tree Planting at Big Rock

On Saturday, January 28th, the Ventura Hillsides Conservancy will host a community tree planting party at the Big Rock Nature Preserve near Foster Park. VHC invites volunteers of all ages to join them from 9 a.m. – 12 noon along the Ventura River Parkway to help plant oaks, sycamore and willow trees on property owned and managed by VHC. The first 30 volunteers to arrive will receive a free REI t-shirt!

The 17- acre Big Rock Preserve is a collection of five properties owned by VHC. The name Big Rock comes from a once-popular swimming hole on the property that was home to a large boulder before floods swept it away. Though the boulder is gone, the water remains. Due to the unique geology of the area, the Big Rock preserve is one of the only places along the Ventura River that has year-round water. The area is home to endangered steelhead trout, as well as western pond turtles, herons, deer, red-legged frogs and bobcats.
