Ventura Wild is now a program of the Ventura Land Trust (VLT). This means we are the educational component of the VLT mission along with “Nature By Design” (Teen and up based). Our ultimate goal is to create highly impactful comprehensive nature based learning experiences. A consolidation of talent and credibility bolsters the quality and capacity of our programs, and we are so excited for all the possibilities to bring more people into awareness, knowledge, skill and stewardship.
Since 2003, Ventura Land Trust, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, has been protecting and preserving the beautiful open space in Ventura and the surrounding region. To date, we have permanently protected 30 acres of open space in the Ventura River watershed, managed 60 acres more and are currently working on the purchase of 2,100 acres of prime hillside property with the goal of opening the first large-scale, publicly accessible hillside nature preserve in Ventura.
Accessible hillsides, oak groves, flowing creeks and rivers, fields of flowers, and ranch and farm lands. Ventura Land Trust is working hard to preserve what makes Ventura such a great place to live, work and play and we need your help! We invite you to join Ventura Land Trust as a member, volunteer or both! Working together, we will protect what makes Ventura beautiful today, tomorrow… FOREVER!
