Ethnobotany Native Plant Nature Trail at the Fillmore Fish Hatchery

When: Postponed until further notice

Where: 612 E Telegraph Road – Fillmore, CA (map)

Friends of the Santa Clara River received grant funding to restore a bare field into a native plant garden and interpretative trail. The funds were given from the California State Coastal Conservancy.  USCB, 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 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. We are always interested in hearing ideas from volunteers on making this happen.
