Friday Bird Walk: Tucker’s Grove


Date & Time

Friday, April 14, 2023

Nestled between Goleta and Santa Barbara just above Cathedral Oaks Road is Tuckers Grove. A popular park and oak woodland it is the main access to San Antonino Canyon Park whose main trail follows San Antonino Creek. The park attracts many birds as parks do but has the added bonus of having a long riparian corridor along the creek. One never knows what avian species will be found here.
