Santa Clara River Valley
The Santa Clara River Valley is a valley in Ventura County, California named for the Santa Clara River, which winds through the valley before emptying into the Pacific Ocean between the cities of Ventura and Oxnard. Given the moniker Heritage Valley by the namesake tourism bureau, they describe it as ".... Southern California's last pristine agricultural valley nestled along the banks of the free-flowing Santa Clara River," ... the "valley incorporates the communities of Santa Paula, Fillmore, Piru and the national landmark of Rancho Camulos."
The Santa Clara River Valley is bordered by Los Padres National Forest and the Sespe Condor Sanctuary to the north and the Santa Susana Mountains to the south. The valley stretches from the boundary of northwest Los Angeles County and the northern Santa Clarita Valley on the east to the Oxnard Plain on the west marked by South Mountain on the south bank of the river. The Santa Clara River begins above the Santa Clarita Valley.
