    The Comeback of the California Condor

    California_Condor.jpg

    The magnificent California Condor almost disappeared from the face of the earth because of careless human activity. Primarily due to lead poisoning from ammunition found in their food sources, there were only 22 condors left in 1982. Thanks to human intervention, today the condor is once again soaring over the mountains of the American West.

    Join representatives from The Friends of the California Condor Wild and Free to learn about this incredible bird, how it has adapted to multiple challenges and what needs to be done to ensure its continued survival.

    This free open-to-the-public event is a part of VHC's ongoing Environmental Speaker Series.

    On Saturday, January 28th, the Ventura Hillsides Conservancy will host a community tree planting party at the Big Rock Nature Preserve near Foster Park. VHC invites volunteers of all ages to join them from 9 a.m. – 12 noon along the Ventura River Parkway to help plant oaks, sycamore and willow trees on property owned and managed by VHC. The first 30 volunteers to arrive will receive a free REI t-shirt!

    The 17- acre Big Rock Preserve is a collection of five properties owned by VHC. The name Big Rock comes from a once-popular swimming hole on the property that was home to a large boulder before floods swept it away. Though the boulder is gone, the water remains. Due to the unique geology of the area, the Big Rock preserve is one of the only places along the Ventura River that has year-round water. The area is home to endangered steelhead trout, as well as western pond turtles, herons, deer, red-legged frogs and bobcats.
