Ojai Creek Restoration

The Ojai Valley Green Coalition team was out today, continuing the effort to clean up and restore the creek in Libbey Park, downtown Ojai. This tributary to San Antonio Creek has been impacted by upstream urbanization, and overgrowth of non-native plants.

In addition to the thick groundcover that has been hand-removed by volunteer events, six huge palm trees were recently removed. The creek already feels so much more open and unrestricted.

Today crews were weeding and planting - acorns and willow stakes were placed in appropriate locations, and it looked like everyone was having a great time!
