Raising $6.9 million, the Land Trust for Santa Barbara County is now the proud owner of 21 acres of open space on the Carpinteria Bluffs, a piece of oceanfront land that, over the years, investors have pushed to develop into a destination resort — only to be rebuffed by a conservation-minded community willing to back up sentiment with lots of cash.
OAK Group Selects Land Trust to Benefit from Exhibit: Icons of Preservation, 2019
For over thirty years, the OAK GROUP artists have contributed to the conservation of local lands for wildlife, recreation, ranching, and farming by donating a portion of the art sales to the conservation of those lands. They express the beauty of these endangered landscapes to help inform the public about their fragility and immense value as natural resources. The exhibit, Icons of Preservation, 2019 will run through August 27 at Sullivan Goss Gallery at 11 East Anapamu, across from the library. 25% of proceeds from the art sales benefit the Land Trust for Santa Barbara. Please take some time to visit the gallery and take in the gorgeous works of our local artists.
