Programs

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 are going virtual! As in past years, our programs resume in the fall, but this time we will be gathering via Zoom. As each date approaches, look for an email—or on our website or social media—for a connection link. 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; Programs@SantaBarbaraAudubon.org.

Recordings of our virtual programs are available for viewing at:
