If we don’t provide opportunities for children to love nature, how can we expect them to grow into adults that will conserve nature?
Ventura Wild is a true catalyst for change in our community. Our staff are college educated, trained outdoor educators that work with multiple organizations providing mentoring to children and families.
Since 2009 Ventura Wild has successfully provided programs to thousands of children and parents from Ojai, Ventura and neighboring communities.
