On Sunday, July 11, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. we will visit the Carpinteria Salt Marsh Nature Park, also known as El Estero, a rare salt wetland in Southern California. Nearly destroyed by development, the remaining estuary was restored in the late 1990s by a group of concerned citizens along with the City of Carpinteria, UCSB, and the Land Trust for Santa Barbara County. Completed in 1997, the 8-acre portion of the marsh owned by the City of Carpinteria was renamed the Carpinteria Salt Marsh Nature Park.
The park includes walking trails and interpretive signage. It is home to hundreds of migrating birds and other wildlife as well as a great variety of edible and medicinal plants of the Coastal Strand and Coastal Sage Scrub plant communities. Due to the sensitivity of the habitat, dogs are prohibited here.
The cost for the walk is $25. Please be sure to use the REGISTER link below before clicking on the PayPal button to complete payment and secure your space. Note: Online payment includes a PayPal fee. To avoid that, you may mail a check. When you register you will receive mailing instructions.
