Everyone is welcome to join in our celebration of our TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY offering nature connection to the children of Ventura County! Come meet the Ventura Wild staff, discover local wild places in the spring, and have some fun with your family and community. You and your children can discover how we bring children into nature connection through creating space to just be a kid, facilitating child centered explorations and sharing skills.
