ABOUT OJAI WILD!

The 12th annual Ojai WILD!, a benefit for Los Padres ForestWatch, takes place each year at The Thacher School’s Upper Field surrounded by panoramic views of the Ojai Valley and Topatopa Mountains.

More than 300 guests join us each year to celebrate our accomplishments while raising support for the protection of our region’s wildlife, wilderness, and waterways.
