Tour Program

Tour Overview

Take a two-hour walk with a trained tour leader through the Reserve's eight ecosystems: from sandy beach to the Devereux Slough to a restored coastal dune system.  Learn about the Reserve's cultural history and its current conservation, restoration, and research projects.  You will enjoy glimpses of rare and endangered species-such as White Tailed Kite, Western Snowy Plover, and the Wandering Skipper butterfly-that make their home at the Reserve.

Join a Tour

Free public tours of the reserve are offered on the first Saturday of every month.  RSVP is required to reserve your spot.  

Free tours for private groups and classes can be scheduled in advance.  In order to ensure that a tour guide will be available on your date, please send requests for private tours at least one month prior.  

To reserve a public or private tour, please email Jessica Nielsen at copr.conservation@nrs.ucsb.edu
