Welcome to the Ojai Valley Green Coalition

The Ojai Valley Green Coalition is a gathering of residents and friends of the Ojai Valley actively working together to create an environmentally sustainable community in Ojai.

In the spirit of "think globally, act locally," we exist to educate ourselves and others about ecological issues; to promote sustainable practices to our local businesses and organizations; to advocate environmental responsibility as a priority to our elected officials; and to bring green consciousness into our lives and our homes.

October 6 Salon: Wildlife

“Traditionally a salon is a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation.”

We meet the 1st Thursday of every other month at the Coalition Resource Center – 206 N. Signal St., Suite S, in downtown Ojai (upstairs on the Aliso/Signal St. corner).

October theme: Wildlife
Thursday, October 6 – 7 to 9 p.m.

WP_20160828_12_02_46_Moutain%20Lion%201.jpgWildlife is all around us! The Ojai Valley is home to many species like deer, foxes, black bears, mountain lions, coyotes, bobcats, and a myriad of bird species, including the endangered California Condor!

Have you encountered any of these wild animals? Is there one you feel especially close to? Do you have a picture, a story or a song you want to share about local wildlife?

Special guest Jim Hines, Sierra Club Los Padres Chapter, will host our October Salon, a welcoming, positive place to express your personal connection to our precious and beautiful wildlife. Please join us.
