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 »

About the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy

Mission: The Ojai Valley Land Conservancy is a community-based non-profit organization working with partners to permanently protect the open space, natural scenic beauty, wildlife, habitat, and watershed of the Ojai Valley for current and future generations.

Your donation supports the protection of open space in the Ojai Valley.

The 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.

In the Ojai Valley, the OVLC manages roughly 2,300 acres of open space—this is an area roughly equal 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 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.

Open space protected by the OVLC is preserved in perpetuity for the benefit of the community. Working with willing landowners on a voluntary basis, land is either protected by its acquisition or through a land conservation agreement.

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.
