Santa Barbara Botanic Garden’s restoration project at Elings Park concentrates California-native plants on a one-acre site and compares the abundance, diversity, and composition of plant and animal life before and after the transformation.

The Landscape Transformation Project is seeking volunteers to help clear invasive plant species using methods such as tarping and sheet mulching. Volunteers will get their hands dirty to plant native seedlings and create a healthy and nutrient rich environment for surrounding organisms. In addition to volunteering, you can also join us for monthly Nature Walks at Elings Park, held on the third Saturday of the month from 9 to 10 a.m.

Join us in 2024. The dates and shift options are listed below. Please note you can volunteer for either shift or for the duration of the timeframe.
