HOW DOES IT WORK?
Our programs meet at local parks, open spaces and schools in Goleta, Santa Barbara and Montecito. We use 15-passenger vans to travel to different locations around Santa Barbara, such as creeks, beaches and open spaces.
Program ratios of 4:1 (children to adults) are achieved by staffing programs with two staff, one volunteer and 12 children.
