APA California - Making Great Communities Happen...

APA Service Day with The Nature Conservancy in Ventura County

Event Date: 
September 26, 2020

Join fellow planners for an outdoor, and socially distant, service day in support of The Nature Conservancy’s work along the Santa Clara River.

Inspired by the passage of Ventura County’s Habitat Connectivity and Wildlife Overlay, which covers this event’s location, the service day is a trash clean up at a property located near the Santa Clara River and owned by The Nature Conservancy. Attendees will meet at the site and be provided with direction by The Nature Conservancy’s staff for the morning cleanup event.
