We will do everything we can for a safe experience, but covid is always a risk. Additionally, SBAS may decide to cancel events should pandemic conditions warrant it. For these reasons, we ask that:

  • All attendees be vaccinated, each participant bring a mask to the event, and social distancing be practiced to the greatest extent practicable.
  • Masks be worn in car pool situations.
  • Prior to attending any bird walk or field trip, please go to santabarbaraaudubon.org/activities for directions and event updates.
