    Keepers of the Light: The History of the Point Conception Lighthouse Reading and discussion with local author, Willard Thompson

    Point Conception, considered sacred ground by the Chumash, is the headland where California’s coast goes from a north-south orientation to east-west, making a natural division between Southern and Northern California. Ever since the Gold Rush Days, the Point Conception Lighthouse has guarded the treacherous Pacific waters where the Santa Barbara Channel and Pacific Ocean meet on the western edge of Santa Barbara County. Such a dangerous place for mariners, Point Conception was dubbed The Cape Horn of California.

    Unmanned Tech for Ocean Protection: Lecture by CDR Matthew Pickett, NOAA (Ret) and President, Oceans Unmanned

    According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), “our oceans are filled with items that do not belong there, [such as] consumer plastics, metals, rubber, paper, textiles…and other lost or discarded items…making marine debris one of the most widespread pollution problems facing the world’s oceans and waterways.” Oceans Unmanned is developing new techniques to survey for marine debris along rugged coastlines and remote beaches using Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) —more commonly called drones—and immersive visualization software for greater effectiveness and safety.
