Sunday October 19th, Tour of Coal Oil Point Reserve

Here's a great way to get involved in local reserve monitoring!

Sunday Oct. 19th: Enjoy a tour of Coal Oil Point Reserve, a nature reserve owned by UCSB

Trained tour leaders will take you on a walk through a few of theReserve’s ecosystems: from sandy beach to the Devereux Slough to a restored coastal dune system. Learn about the Reserve's current
restoration projects and its cultural and geologic history while identifying flora and fauna-such as American Kestrel, Coast Golden Bush, and the Globuse Dune Beetle-that make their home at Coal Oil
Point. $5 donation suggested, except for students and Reserve volunteers.

Tours occur monthly on the third Sunday from 2:00 pm to 4:15 pm. Tours for groups or classes over five people are available by appointment if reservations are made atleast three weeks in advance.

Reservations for tours are required. No reservations are taken on weekends. Tours are capped at 15 people, so early registration is suggested. Contact Leeza Charleboix via email at or via phone at (805) 893-5092 to reserve a spot.
