The Land Trust for Santa Barbara purchased the Coronado Butterfly Preserve in 1998 for $600,000 using public and private grants and over $50,000 in community donations.
This place is truly wonderful - in the sense that it can fill you with wonder. If you haven't been then you should make the time - a perfect study break. The butterflies are arriving right now and there are already a decent number there. Directions here if you want to visit - it's about 4 miles from campus.

You can also volunteer with the land trust:

Volunteers are needed to remove non-native plants, plant native plants, clear trails and fire hazards. The Advisory Committee organizes several volunteer work days each year, and we’d love to have your help.

If you are interested in volunteering at the Coronado Butterfly Preserve, please contact the Land Trust at (805) 966-4520 or email us.
