ABOUT OJAI WILD!

Over the last fourteen years, Ojai WILD! has become a mainstay for our community to come together to celebrate our accomplishments while raising support for Los Padres ForestWatch, a small but mighty nonprofit organization that works to protect the Los Padres National Forest in Ojai’s backyard. It’s the longest-running conservation benefit in Ventura County.

In the spirit of this tradition—and physical distancing—we are proud to bring everyone together for a virtual event this year. Join us online as we raise support for one of our region’s most effective conservation forces as well as local Ojai small businesses and families in need.

ONLINE AUCTION

Our popular auction features hand-curated gifts and adventures produced locally and beyond. This year’s auction features dozens of items and they’re open for all—no ticket needed. Place a bid, receive a notification when someone has outbid you, buy an item instantly, or contribute to our fund-a-need. All proceeds support our efforts to protect and defend our region’s public lands. Bidding begins June 11, 2021, check back for details on how to register.

HELPING FAMILIES IN NEED

We are partnering with our friends at HELP of Ojai to lend a hand to those in need. Sponsor the event and a portion of your sponsorship will provide a month’s worth of food deliveries to a local food-insecure family.

OUR SPECIAL GUESTS

We are thrilled and honored to present a lineup of special guests to bring us together for a worthwhile cause—protecting our region’s public lands, wildlife, and outdoor recreation. From local elected officials to community leaders, we all share a commitment to making the world around us a better place.

Together, we celebrate you for supporting our work—it’s more important than ever. After you’re done listening, we hope you’ll become a sponsor or head on over to our WILD AT HOME online auction to place your bid or to make a direct donation to Los Padres ForestWatch. All amounts, large and small, will make a difference, allowing Los Padres ForestWatch to protect our region’s beautiful outdoor spaces for generations to come.
