Central Coast Habitat Restoration and Environmental Education

Our federal funding sources are drying up and we need your help to maintain our work! Channel Islands Restoration is an environmental nonprofit based out of Santa Barbara and serving California's Central Coast. We work with volunteers to restore native habitat in critical places for the benefit of rare and important wildlife and plants. By working with volunteers of all ages, we're getting our community engaged with their backyard environment. We also emphasize working on California's Channel Islands, which are brimming with life found nowhere else on Earth. Our work results in an engaged community to create an environment that is more resistant to invasion from non-native plants as well as developers seeking to privatise our coast. We work closely with federal agencies like the National Park Service, the Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Forest Service, and we're often able to receive funding from them to support our work, but with recent "federal administrative changes," we're watching that money disappear. We're now turning to you for help. In order to continue our work on Santa Rosa Island, San Nicolas Island, Santa Cruz Island, East Anacapa Island, and on the mainland, we need your help to continue to pursue our mission. With your contribution of $1 or $100 or $10,000, we can make it through this drought without skipping a beat. With your contribution, we can continue to restore areas like the Santa Rosa Cloud Forest (an oak grove atop the highest peak whose trees are adapted to capture fog as it rolls over the mountain top, and is the largest source of freshwater for the island), we can continue to build nesting habitat for pelagic birds on Anacapa Island, and we can continue to create habitat for endangered species like the Island Night Lizard on San Nicolas Island. Meanwhile on the mainland we're restoring coastal meadows, riparian corridors, and stewarding public open spaces like the San Marcos Foothills as a preserve of native California Habitat. All of this while engaging community volunteers to help promote environmental education. We need your help to keep this going. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this, Tanner Yould Outreach Coordinator
