Management Areas

  • CCBER manages more than 250 acres of open space between Ellwood Mesa and Goleta Slough. Characterized by a rich complex of oak woodland, coastal sage scrub, grassland, and wetland ecosystems, the area is known for its high biodiversity. CCBER’s project sites and management areas serve to protect the region’s ecology through habitat conservation, upland restoration, wetland creation and enhancement, and the implementation of sustainable stormwater management solutions. By careful integration with local watersheds and surrounding natural areas, CCBER management areas provide important refuge for wildlife and ensure the protection of natural resources.
