Free Elings Park Nature Walk on Plants and Bugs, Led by Santa Barbara Botanic Garden
Saturday, November 18, 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.: Plants and Bugs. Led by Zach Philips, Ph.D., the Garden’s Terrestrial Invertebrate Conservation Ecologist, and José Flores, Conservation Technician
Join us on a free Nature Walk to explore Elings Park’s biodiversity! Each one-hour walk has a different natural history focus, such as plants, pollinators, or birds, and is led by experts from the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden.
The walks are the start of a larger collaborative effort between Elings Park, Botanic Garden, and the public to transform a section of the Park from invasive to native plants and document the effects.
Future walks are scheduled, once a month, through the end of 2023.
Meet at the parking lot adjacent to the Elings Park administration building by 9 a.m. No reservations are necessary.
Saturday, December 16, 9 to 10 a.m. – Birds: Led by Scot Pipkin, the Garden’s Director of Education, and Zach Philips, Ph.D., Terrestrial Invertebrate Conservation Ecologist
