The Story of Our River

Our partners at Once Upon a Watershed have created an informative video telling the story of the Ventura River.  

Once Upon a Watershed provides hands-on local watershed education, restoration and stewardship experience for Kindergarten, 4th, 5th and 6th grade students in the Ventura River Watershed. 

The video shown here was created for their program for 6th grade students which focuses on the critically endangered indicator species, Southern Steelhead Trout, and the effects of the Matilija dam on beach erosion and spawning access.

...the presentation on beaches, sediment, and Matilija dam removal starts around 12:20
