Your Chance to Get Involved: See You at the Beach!

When you look around town, the grass is greener, the flowers are beginning to bloom, and creeks that were once dry now run with water — it somehow feels as though Mother Earth has awoken from a deep slumber. The rain from the past series of storms this winter has been vital in fighting back our extreme drought.

But we can’t deny that the impact of the storms has changed our shores and brought about a mod podge collection of debris onto our beach. As a certified, bonafide, proud beach town, there’s nothing more that Venturans care about: our beaches and wildlife. 

Consider this a kind and inspirational call to action: now is the time to gather together to maintain the beauty of our beaches and volunteer to clean up.  

So grab a trash bag, get ready to get your hands dirty, and bring a determined heart to make our beaches shine bright once again. Ventura, we can do this!
