Ventura Hillside Conservancy looking for volunteers for tree planting Sat., Dec. 19, 9am-12pm


We know it’s a very busy time of year but Ventura Hillside Conservancy hopes that you can put your holiday shopping on hold for a couple of hours this Saturday, Dec.19, and help us plant trees from 9 a.m. – noon at our Big Rock Preserve.

Volunteers both young and old are encouraged to join us as we dig holes in the soil and plant young trees along the Ventura River Parkway. If you joined us last month at our first Tree Planting Party, you know how much fun it is to dig in the dirt with 100 new friends. If you missed out, here’s your chance to pitch in and help us start approximately 75 young trees off on the right foot.

Thanks to the ongoing generosity of our friends at REI, we will be giving away free REI t-shirts to the first 25 people to arrive!

To get to Big Rock Preserve, take Highway 33 toward Ojai and exit at Casitas Vista Rd. Turn right, park underneath the highway overpass and walk to the bike path. Take a left at the bike path entrance and we will be set up a short way ahead – near the mural. Please wear pants, sturdy closed-toe shoes, sunscreen and bring a shovel and a friend!

If you have questions, give us a call 643-8044. Hope to see you on Saturday!
