Santa Barbara Botanic Garden moves into the next phase of its Elings Park Transformation. The restoration project 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.

The volunteer work happens following the Garden’s monthly Nature Walks at Elings Park, held on the third Saturday of the month from 9 to 10 a.m. Following are the remaining dates for 2023.

  • October 14, 9 a.m.
  • October 21, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
  • October 28, 9 a.m.
  • November 11, 9 a.m.
  • November 18, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
  • December 2, 9 a.m.
  • December 16, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
