Friends of the Santa Clara River is a public interest organization formed in 1993. Since our inception, Friends has concentrated on a range of issues involving protection of the entire river in both Ventura and Los Angeles Counties. These efforts have included opposition to many large urban development projects involving intrusion into the river’s floodplain and channelization of the river.

Dig In! Community and Climate Change

Dig In! features an Oxnard College student’s journey with the local environmental movement, including a volunteer restoration day with faculty at the Santa Clara River. The 8.5 minute movie from Friends of the Santa Clara River debuted at Oxnard College’s OC Live! along with the screening of the film Kiss the Ground, April 20, 2022. The event featured a panel and audience discussion.
