In support of the Dune Swale Pond Buffer Fire Recovery Project, Santa Barbara Audubon will host a volunteer restoration workday this Saturday, March 5th. We will meet on Venoco Road in Goleta at 9am (see red star on map), at the electronic metal gate, and carpool from there to the work site. Use the entrance to West Campus Family Housing; at the back don’t turn left on the housing road, turn onto the second left, the connection onto Venoco Road. From Storke Road, this is just across from Santa Catalina high-rise dorms.
-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. Easy biking.
Please remember to wear sturdy shoes and bring a hat or wear sunscreen. We will provide work gloves, tools, snacks, and water.
If you have questions or get lost call Aaron Kreisberg at 805-679-1578
The workday will be in support of SBAS’s Dune Swale Pond Buffer Fire Recovery Project, funded by the Southern California Wetland Recovery Project, UCSB Coastal Fund, and Citrix, with initial financial support provided by donations from Santa Barbara Audubon members. Thanks to these supporters, the project is funded through June of 2017. If you can’t make it this Saturday, there will be several Saturday workdays to come next year.
