Inside this issue: Conservation helping the climate, how the Arroyo Hondo Preserve serves Santa Barbara County's youth, a meeting of neighboring Land Trust minds, new and outgoing faces on the staff and board, and more.
The Land Trust’s work in Monetcito’s Ennisbrook neighborhood continues at the 44-acre San Ysidro Oak Woodland.
On June 20 the Land Trust welcomed enthusiastic crews from California Conservation Corps (CCC) and Cal Fire for heavy-duty cleanup work and restoration. CCC spent more than a week removing piles of dirt, tree limbs, and other debris. You can see the dramatic improvement in this video of Land Trust Conservation Manager, Graham Wesolowski. Funding from FEMA and the Ennisbrook Homeowners Association is helping the Land Trust bring the woodland back better than ever. While the progress is dramatic, additional support is needed to help the Land Trust restore trails and conserved properties that were damaged in the fires and flows.
