Manage Signature Preserves

The Land Trust for Santa Barbara County manages signature nature preserves where the public can access open space, trails, and learn about local ecology. We also work with volunteers and community members on native plant restoration projects at the preserves, enhancing and supporting native wildlife habitat and trail maintenance. Our preserves are home to endangered species such as migratory monarch butterflies, steelhead trout, California red-legged frogs, among others. Interpretive signs can be found throughout the preserves, and each can accommodate educational field trips for schools and passive recreation activities such as birdwatching, walking, and nature photography.


Help shape our county’s future.

Iconic views, locally grown food, fresh water, clean air, recreation access, thriving wildlife habitat—it’s all here in Santa Barbara County and when you give to the Land Trust, you invest in the protection of the places you love.
