Volunteering Opportunities

Ribbon Cutting for the Ethnobotany Native Plant Nature Trail at the Fillmore Fish Hatchery

When: Postponed until further notice

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

You’re invited! Please join us for the public opening. Come fill your senses and be a part of the day! Friends of the Santa Clara River received grant funding for this wonderful Interpretive garden and trail from the California State Coastal Conservancy.  USCB and the Santa Clara River Conservancy supported the effort along with volunteers from the public.  Enjoy the trail through the garden and learn about our local ecology, wildlife and habitat restoration along the Santa Clara River. Many of the plants share a long history with the local Chumash and Tataviam peoples of the area who used these plants for food, medicine, and building materials. We’ll have locally grown refreshments, native plants for sale to take home and more!

Directions: From Highway 126, take the turn for the Fillmore Fish Hatchery, 1/2 mile East of Fillmore. Please give time to look and make the turn safely as 126 can be busy. Parking available.
