Ventura River Restoration IV

Restoration Stories

Ventura Hobo Clean-up

Ventura Land Trust manages 90 acres of property within the Ventura River watershed, all of which are either along the Ventura River or along creeks that feed into the Ventura River. Since 2012, Ventura Land Trust, with massive support from volunteers, has removed over a million pounds of trash from the Ventura River watershed. The restoration efforts have also created wildlife habitat and connected wildlife corridors by removing invasive Arundo donax, which chokes up waterways, outcompetes native plant species and introduces fires into ecosystems. The Ventura River Estuary is an extremely important coastal wetland, containing an estimated 600 species of plants and providing habitat for thousands of shorebirds, fish and other animals.
