Location:
Other, on-campus
In conjunction with the UCSB Reads 2020 book Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore, please join Cris Sandoval, Director of the Reserve, and Charles Lester of UCSB’s Ocean and Coastal Policy Center in the Marine Science Institute on a two-hour walk through the reserve's eight habitats: from sandy beach to the Devereux Slough to a restored coastal dune system.  Learn about the Reserve's cultural history and its current conservation, restoration, and research projects and learn how sea level rise will affect these habitats.  You will enjoy glimpses of rare and endangered species-such as White Tailed Kite, Western Snowy Plover, and the Wandering Skipper butterfly. 
 

Meeting Location: At picnic tables in front of Cliff House, Coal Oil Point Reserve, Slough Road
