Santa Barbara Wild!
We at Los Padres ForestWatch are hosting our first ever Santa Barbara Wild! on Sunday, September 27, from 2:00 to 5:00 at the Toad&Co Courtyard on the beautiful Santa Barbara Riviera. We hope you'll be able to join us for a fun afternoon featuring local craft brews from Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co., hand-crafted wines from throughout the region, live music, appetizers, an exciting silent auction, and more!
This year we will be raising funds in celebration of the role that bees and other pollinators play in protecting the Los Padres National Forest, which in turn provides a home to them and all other wildlife in our area.
