Nature Education Building
The Foundation has been raising funds since 2017 to support the District with building a Nature Education Building to increase Pleasant Valley Recreation & Park District's Outdoor Education programming at Camarillo Grove Park's Nature Center. The building will play a vital role in increasing environmental and nature education to the community through and average of 36 classes and hikes combined annually. The Nature Center is open to the public during park hours for leisure, hiking, and classes, and is widely used by local schools for field trips.
The Foundation is partnering with organizations to help support our cause. The Foundation received a $1,000 environmental grant from Amber's Light Lions Club to help purchase two display cases for the taxidermy animals. Lauterbach & Associates Architects Inc. partnered with us on blueprints, plans and the permit process.
August 1, 2023: Permit and clearances were approved by Ventura County.
September 5, 2023: First phase of construction started with preparing the foundation for concrete.
Our goal is to have the new Tuff Shed building completed by the end of 2023.
