Restoration and Revegetation

Starting in late 2009, CIR began restoring sites along Los Carneros in Goleta. Under funding from the Goleta Valley Land Trust, the project involved removal of key invasive plant species from the perimeter of the Lake followed by re-vegetation of the area with native plants. More than 350 volunteers have helped with this project so far. The project emphasizes community involvement and education, and enhances important bird habitat and directly benefits Santa Barbara honeysuckle (a species of special concern.) We are proud to be working closely with the City of Goleta on this project.
