|“Conservation is a state of harmony between men and land.” — Aldo Leopold Gaviota Creek runs to the Pacific year round even after many years of drought. Its beautiful riparian area supports black bears, California newts, Western pond turtles, California red-legged frogs, two-striped gartersnakes, and threatened Southern steelhead trout.|
Partnering with Coastal Ranches Conservancy, The Oak Group will exhibit paintings and photographs revealing Gaviota Creek’s unique ecosystem, as well as watersheds throughout the entire Gaviota Coast, November 1-30 in the Faulkner Gallery of Central Library, downtown Santa Barbara.
Half the show’s proceeds will support Coastal Ranches Conservancy in its efforts to revitalize the Gaviota creek bed and floodplain, removing concrete obstacles that block breeding migrations of steelhead and re-routing the existing access road for Gaviota State Park Beach.
