From sea level to the Santa Ynez Mountains, Santa Barbara has a grand array of plant communities and animals that call them home. Salt marsh, creeks, chaparral, oak woodland, and a small lake provide food and shelter for an amazing diversity of animal life.  Enjoy a leisurely walk, with some walks flat, and some ascending a few hundred feet. Come away with a deeper appreciation of our 'front country' by getting acquainted with its geology, flora and fauna.
