    Tour a Goleta Creek this Creek Week

    Creek Week Tours Tomorrow and Friday

    Looking for a way to celebrate Creek Week this week? Go on a Creek Tour. There are two being offered this week, one tomorrow and one on Friday.

    • Devereux Creek Tour Tomorrow, Thursday, September 28, 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.
      Take a walking tour of Devereux Creek at Ellwood Mesa with the City of Goleta’s Parks and Open Space Manager George Thomson. Participants will learn about the Devereux Creek watershed, look up close at transitional wetland habitats, examine why some invasive plants can impact biodiversity negatively, decipher what monarch butterfly overwintering sites need to function, and more. Please bring drinking water, binoculars if you have them, and sturdy walking shoes. We will be walking through uneven terrain and covering approximately 1-2 miles. All ages are encouraged to attend. Meet at Santa Barbara Shores Drive and Sea Gull Drive. Please RSVP to gthomson@cityofgoleta.org to reserve your spot.
    • San Jose Creek Tour this Friday, September 29, 11:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
      Join the City of Goleta for a “Clean Creeks, Green Streets: San Jose Creek Tour.” Meet at Jonny D. Wallis Neighborhood Park (170 S. Kellogg Avenue) for a tour with the City of Goleta’s Environmental Services Manager Melissa Nelson and Brian Trautwein of the Environmental Defense Center. See what is happening in the creek, learn about habitat restoration and water quality, and get your free stickers. Walk-ins are welcome, but it is recommended that you reserve your space by emailing environmentalservices@cityofgoleta.org.
