The historic Steckel Park Aviary in Ventura County, north of Santa Paula, has been delighting generations of park visitors for over 50 years.

It is now in a state of disrepair and is threatened with demolition. The Friends of Steckel Park Aviary are a group of concerned community members who are working with the County of Ventura to restore the Aviary.  We can’t let this community icon be lost.

A BBQ chicken dinner fundraiser will be held on June 7.  Dinner tickets are $8 each.  The SP Fire Fighters Association will be preparing the delicious dinners.  Diners must pre-purchase dinner tickets.  These can be purchased at the Santa Paula Times office on Main Street and the Best of VC Marketplace on 10th Street or by calling 340-3345.  

Monetary donations are also being sought.  Will you help?  The Aviary needs your support. Send checks payable to: Santa Paula Community Fund, 1354 Mariposa Drive, Santa Paula, CA 93060.

Donations are tax deductible and a receipt will be sent to you.  You can also visit us on Facebook “Save the Steckel Park Aviary.” For  more information, call 340-3345.
