SBAS Volunteer Habitat Restoration Workday at Coal Oil Point Reserve Saturday April 12th

This Saturday April 12th Santa Barbara Audubon will be hosting a volunteer workday from 9 to 12 at Coal Oil Point Reserve helping to restore native flora and improve bird habitat.

We will meet at 9 AM at the black gate on Venoco Road off of Storke Road.

  • If you are coming from Highway 101 take the Glen Annie/ Storke Rd Exit.  Travel south on Storke Rd (towards the ocean).  After you pass Phelps Rd and the construction site, look for a driveway on the right past the construction fencing.
  • If coming from Isla Vista/UCSB make a right at the intersection of El Colegio and Storke Rd and take your first left hand turn into the driveway just before the construction fencing.

Remember to wear sturdy shoes and bring a hat or wear sunscreen.  We will provide work gloves, tools, drinking water and snacks.

If you have questions or get lost call or email Aaron Kreisberg at 714-552-8392 or akberg90@gmail.com.
