Pricing Info

Ventura Wild is an education program of Ventura Land Trust, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your registration fee covers the cost of running the program and that’s it. We are simply here to share the joy and love of nature while tending and protecting our environment.

Winter Session (11 weeks) is our most extensive learning opportunity, nearly twice as long as our typical session. With the holidays approaching, we recognize that the value of the winter session may pose a challenge to pay in one lump sum. Therefore registration for any of our Winter Programs will include an option for payment plans! Click here for additional info on pricing and scholarships.
