Since 1890, Santa Barbara County has offered an enormous variety of beautiful outdoor spaces for public enjoyment. Whether you seek to host a camping cookout, a causal company picnic, or a choreographed wedding atop a panoramic sea cliff, along a cozy stream, in a cool redwood grove, on a sandy beach or lakeside, any scenario is possible in one or more of our county parks.
There are many ways to get involved with the Park Foundation.
- Volunteer for work on park projects or clean up days.
- Sponsor a Bench in commemoration or celebration of an event or loved one.
- Donate to the Foundation at different capacities and become a member.
- Join the Board of Directors or the Advisory Committee to help guide the foundation itself.
The Park Foundation is always looking for assistance on one of the many projects we are currently involved in. A list of these projects is available for your inspiration.
In the coming months volunteers will be able to access an Online Volunteer Calendar that will provide the dates and times of upcoming clean up days, horticulture opportunities, and park events for which they can offer their time. If you would like to get involved in one of our current projects, please contact us Jessica Rauch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
