We in Santa Barbara are very lucky to have amazing natural history and birding experts available to present to us monthly. Our programs are usually the fourth Wednesday of the month at Farrand Hall at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History unless otherwise noted. The doors open at 7pm with programming starting at 7:30.

Our monthly programs continue to be presented virtually. As each date approaches, look for an email—or on our website or social media—for a connection link. We hope to see you there! Are you new to Zoom? Please don’t let that deter you from joining us. Programs chair Teresa Fanucchi can help you get started. Call or email her: Hidden;
