Your donation supports the protection of open space in the Ojai Valley. Whether you are a resident or just enjoy visiting the valley, Ojai’s open space is an important part of what makes Ojai special. 

The Ojai Valley Land Conservancy (OVLC) is a nonprofit, non-governmental, land protection organization supported by private donations. We work to protect the views, trails, water, and wildlife of the Ojai Valley for current and future generations to enjoy. The OVLC protects Ojai’s open spaces and preserves the valley’s natural beauty.

If you hike in Ojai, you have probably enjoyed an OVLC trail. In the Ojai Valley, the OVLC manages roughly 2,300 acres of open space—this is an area roughly equivalent in size to 2/3 of the City of Ojai. Of this, 2,000 acres are open free for public access—this is five times as much land in this area as is managed, for free public access, by the City of Ojai and Ventura County combined. This includes about 4.5 of the 16 miles of the Ventura River. On these lands the OVLC maintains 27 miles of trail, guides hundreds of visitors, and hosts tens of thousands of school children, hikers, equestrians, and others each year.

The Ojai Valley Land Conservancy works to protect open space within the Ojai Valley in perpetuity for the benefit of the community. We rely on your generous support to continue our work.

A family membership starts at just $35 per year. Our members make all of this possible. Join today to do your part in protecting Ojai.
