Welcome to the official Ventura Sierra Club meetup group! We are everyone in Ventura, Oxnard, Camarillo, Ojai, Santa Paula, Fillmore, Somis, El Rio, Port Hueneme, and all the little places inbetween. Want to hike locally? This is the place to be! Ease into fitness at beginner walks, get going on intermediate half or whole day hikes, or make new friendships on overnight backpacks. Want to volunteer for the environment? Check out our service activities! We do beach/river clean ups, trail repair, native plant restorations and more. Your personal fulfillment awaits! "Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life." ~John Muir 1901
Since we can't be together in person yet, let's have some time together online. Our group chair will host a zoom meeting and show you some fun and informative ways to stay active with the Ventura Sierra club.
1: The zoom meeting will be no longer than 40 minutes! This is the longest time a free meeting is allowed.
2: The maximum number of attendees is 100. If you get the invite but are late and the meeting is already full, you will be shut out.
3: Instructions to join the zoom meeting are as follows:
