The Lower Ventura River Habitat Restoration Project removed invasive plant species in the Ventura River. The project utilized volunteer labor to remove harmful invasive species such as Arundo, Tobacco Tree, and Castor Bean. The Ventura Land Trust also leveraged this opportunity to educate volunteers about the negative impacts of invasive species in the Ventura River Watershed, and promote the benefits of a healthy watershed populated by native plants.
