Rancho Ventura Conservation Trust
Rancho Ventura ensures the valuable biological, agricultural, visual, and cultural resources of Ventura’s hillsides, while protecting thriving ecosystems and protecting productive agricultural land. Rancho Ventura protects a critical wildlife corridor all the way to Las Padres National Forest. Through the efforts of the trust founders, 1,612 acres of the Ventura Foothills are now permanently protected, in perpetuity, for the benefit of the land and for the appreciation and enjoyment of the public.
