Where: Fillmore, CA

Event Information

Friends of the Santa Clara River (FSCR) is hosting a volunteer day at the ethnobotany trail located at the Fillmore Fish Hatchery in Fillmore, California. FSCR received grant funding to restore a bare field into a native plant interpretative trail. The funds were provided by the California State Coastal Conservancy, UCSB, and the Santa Clara River Conservancy are supporting the effort along with volunteers from the public. Help continue to grow the trail and learn about the local watershed ecology, wildlife and habitat restoration along the Santa Clara River. Chumash and Tataviam peoples of the area used these local plants for food, medicine, and building materials. Into the future, we hope volunteer days will include locally grown refreshments, native plant sales, and more.
