This 100-acre restoration project restores the historic upper arms of Devereux Slough to tidal flow by excavating 350,000 cubic yards of fill from a golf course created in the wetland in the 1960s. Come learn how this project models sustainable development concepts and restores diverse native habitats and public trails to the larger Ellwood-Devereux open space.

Lisa Stratton, Director of Ecosystem management for CCBER has been spearheading the project with the CCBER team of staff and students. Lisa received her Ph.D. in 1998 and has been working at CCBER since 2005. Her work involves restoring native flora and fauna across our campus which is situated at the interface between the urban environment and valuable wetlands and ocean environments.

Location: Meet at the North Campus Open Space parking lot - 6969 Whittier Drive, Goleta 93117
