The Goleta Pier is Partially Open - Currently and for the past two weeks the pier has been partially open for approximately the first 280 ft. and closed the rest of the way. Starting Monday the rest of the pier will be opened for pedestrians, tourists and anglers by fencing off the damaged area and creating a pathway along the left side of the pier to gain access to the rest of the pier. The full structural report is expected shortly and once received, repairs will be bid out and the pier fixed. This is expected to take two months. Please check back to the website for updates as we work to get the pier open as soon as possible. 5/7/2014

Cachuma Lake Given Maximum Protection from Invasive Species: Santa Barbara County Extends Vessel Quarantine to 30 Days.   The County of Santa Barbara Community Services Department Parks Division has received Board of Supervisor’s approval to increase protection from aquatic invasive species at Cachuma Lake. Staff will be enforcing a 30 day vessel quarantine on all trailered vessels entering Cachuma Lake, which is an extension of the current 14 day quarantine period.  A longer quarantine period provides additional protections against the invasive species. There are two exceptions to the new quarantine policy: 1) Vessels that already have a Cachuma Lake boat launch security tag will not have to be inspected, and 2) kayaks and canoes will be allowed to launch after passing the inspection program and power wash. With more stringent quarantine protocols the lake can continue recreational boating. Please view the entire Cachuma Lake 30-Day Quagga Protocol press release here.  View detailed boat launch protocols here.

The George Rhoads Windamajig kinetic sculpture at Goleta Beach is undergoing restoration.  The sculpture was temporarily removed on April 7, 2014, and is anticipated to be back at Goleta Beach in six weeks.  After over twenty years of exposure to the marine environment, the Windamajig rotating arms, chimes and mechanicals will undergo repairs, restoration and receive fresh paint.  Restoration is funded by a partnership between a private foundation that supports public art and the Santa Barbara County Art Commission.
