Connecting the next generation stewards to the outdoors and state parks through park restoration, Concerned Resource & Environmental Workers with local partners is completing the restoration of the Lower Ventura River along the southern edge of Emma Wood State Beach. This project will engage low-income local youth employees and community volunteers in the stewardship of a healthy watershed.

The CREW is delighted to receive this grant from the California State Parks Foundation for continuing work along the Ventura River at Emma Wood State Beach. The use of this grant will enable us to restore a greenbelt and trail network that will reconnect the west side community of Ventura to open space along the lower Ventura River and the ephemeral trails of Emma Wood.
