Stephen has been a longtime supporter of Explore Ecology and Art From Scrap and previously served on our board. “Over the past 16 years, I have been connected to the wonderful people and programs at Explore Ecology including Art From Scrap and the Watershed Resource Center at Arroyo Burro Beach. I’ve watched the organization grow and develop into what has become an indispensable non-profit organization that has impacted thousands of children in a meaningful and positive way!”
We couldn’t have asked for a more knowledgeable and skilled addition to our staff.

His previous work experience includes serving as General Manager at Republic Services of Oxnard and at Allied Waste Services and Environmental Services Supervisor at the City of Santa Barbara.
“There has never been a more important time to provide our children with a clear understanding of recycling, composting and the need to protect our watersheds and beaches in Santa Barbara County,” adds MacIntosh. “I look forward with great enthusiasm to helping Explore Ecology reach even more of our community’s youth with the critically important messages of protecting and conserving the earth’s natural resources. The future is bright!”
