We are a group of Santa Barbara High School students who have partnered with UCSB’s Cheadle Center for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration (CCBER) with the goal of helping to restore and preserve our local Chaparral habitat. Our efforts as a student-run organization will include hands on remediation and restoration projects, local community involvement and partnerships, and educational as well as awareness programs to help better inform our local Santa Barbara population of the necessity of a healthy and thriving native ecosystem.
