Our Mission

Once Upon a Watershed seeks to awaken wonder, appreciation, discovery and connection with the natural world
Through hands-on, standards-based watershed education, restoration, and stewardship experiences, our programs cultivate a sense of shared responsibility for our whole earth system, instilling confidence and hope by empowering young people to make a real difference at the local watershed scale.

Our Programs

Once Upon a Watershed provides hands-on local watershed education, restoration and stewardship experience for Kindergarten, 4th, 5th and 6th grade students in the Ventura River Watershed.
