Exploring the Santa Barbara Coast through science, writing, and creativity. 

Register today for a free Fall, Winter, Spring, or Summer writing workshop in the natural environment of the Santa Barbara Coast. Our three-hour Saturday workshops, led by writers and scientists, allow community members to spend time in the wilderness as writers, citizen scientists, and thinkers. 

This fee-free program, hosted by Surfrider Santa Barbara, is made possible through a grant authorized by the University of California, Santa Barbara Coastal Fund.
