Santa Barbara Beach

Explore, enjoy and protect the planet: Starting here, starting now.

Santa Barbara, considered by many to be the birthplace of the modern environmental movement, is at a crossroads. We are rich in natural beauty, biodiversity and potential clean energy, but oil interests are attempting to influence our elections and set us backwards. Never has our work been more urgent and more important.

Our top priorities: Protecting critical habitat and open space; moving beyond fossil fuels; promoting clean renewable energy; and working directly in elections to pass environmental ballot measures and elect environmental leaders.
