Thank you for your patience and understanding as we recover from the damage from the Thomas Fire on our trails. In the coming months trails will likely open and close depending on rain and changing trail conditions. Click here for current information and trail notifications »

Community Volunteers

By on May 30, 2018 in All About Ojai, News with 0 Comments

The OVLC works to steward the land of the Ojai Valley for the benefit of the community, so when the community shows up to volunteer as stewards themselves, we feel even more inspired in our mission. Since the Thomas Fire, there has been a marked increase in community engagement with the OVLC on the preserves. There have been near-weekly volunteer work days these past few months and members of the public have shown up to do everything from putting up signs, to cleaning up burned trails, to building rock check steps.

It’s not just local community members that are helping give back. Numerous church, school, and business groups have also lent a hand. Groups helped us install a much needed culvert, brush overgrown trails at the Ojai Meadows Preserve, and rebuild fire destroyed signs. The OVLC is strong because of our supporters and volunteers. We rely upon your invaluable help both in the field and in the office. We thank you for all of your time and hard work.

– Brendan Taylor, Stewardship Director
