Winter Celebration Picnic at Arroyo Verde Park, Ventura

In December, rather than having our usual Chapter Meeting on the third Tuesday of December, the CNPS Channel Islands Chapter is doing something a little different. We are inviting members to gather at Arroyo Verde Park in Ventura. We will have a short hike led by Chapter Hike Coordinator David Torfeh from 9 am to 11 am to see what is sprouting after our recent rains. Then we will have a picnic from 11 am to 1 pm at the picnic area. You can do the hike or picnic or both! Note: rain cancels both. Please RSVP to Ellen for the picnic (eadean@omsoft.com). Hike details and directions to Arroyo Verde Park and the hike meeting spot are on our Field Trips page.

Picnic Details:  Directions to Arroyo Verde Park are on our Field Trips page. Note that there is a $5 charge per car parked in the park lot. Bring cash. Street parking also available. We will hold the picnic at the two tables (next to each other) near the second restroom north of the park entrance. This is a potluck. Some of us will sit-out the hike, in order to hold the picnic tables in the picnic area (they can’t be reserved, unless they have a barbeque pit). Bring a picnic blanket, if you prefer sitting on the ground, or a folding chair, if that is your preference. If you want to bring a reusable plate, cup and utensils, that would cut back on waste, but we will bring some paper plates and cups too.
