What Is A Watershed?
An area of land that drains to a body of water.
Learn about watershed ecology and the importance of protecting our creeks and ocean at the Watershed Resource Center located at Arroyo Burro Beach. Bring your family and friends to our Beach Cleanups, held on the 2nd Sundays of the Month at 10:00 am. After the cleanup, stop by during open hours, every 2nd Sunday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Enjoy a variety of family-friendly activities and learn about Santa Barbara’s unique watersheds.
An eco-friendly building, the WRC features low-toxicity and reclaimed materials. While you’re here, be sure to check out the upcycled floor that was originally an old gymnasium court.
The Watershed Resource Center is available for community-based organizations with watershed, coastal, and environmental-related missions to use as a venue for meetings, public forums and events. For questions about Beach Cleanups or to schedule your community group meeting, contact Julia at (805) 884-0459 or email Julia.
Monthly Beach Cleanups at Arroyo Burro Beach are a wonderful way for families, businesses, and groups to volunteer together and to make a direct positive impact on ocean health. Meet at the Watershed Resource Center at 10:00 am to sign in and pick up supplies. Help us keep the cleanups a zero waste event by bringing your own bag, bucket, and gloves if possible.
