How our Pricing Works
We are working hard to create accessible and affordable programs.
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.
A small percentage of your registration fee goes towards professional development to continue offering training opportunities for our staff such as Wilderness First Aid, Non-violent Communication, LGBTQIA+ cultural competency, etc. We hope you agree that offering these opportunities for our staff to continue to learn and grow in turn supports the quality of our programs. We also aim to fairly compensate our staff to support their endeavors in the outdoors and within our community. We understand this increases the cost of our programs, though we hope you agree this is the right thing to do.
Scholarships are available and will be awarded based on financial need.
