Gather with family and friends to celebrate eleven years of conservation victories at our Eighth Annual celebration at Diamond Hitch Camp, a picturesque site near Thacher Creek along the foothills of the Los Padres National Forest! Enjoy a gourmet barbeque supper under the oaks, live music, nature walks, and a silent auction followed by a spirited live auction. Join us in celebrating the coming of Spring and our region’s wild places and wildlife. See you at Diamond Hitch!
Our naturalists will take you on an adventurous trek through the foothills of Diamond Hitch Camp, sharing stories about local plants and wildlife and the surrounding terrain. These hikes begin at 1:00pm and conclude in plenty of time to attend Ojai Wild! at 2:30.
Join together with family and friends and get ready to bid on a unique and exciting collection of items that will be offered at this year’s live and silent auction. View our exciting live auction items and silent auction contributors – and check back often as more items are added in the days and weeks ahead.
