Management Areas

  • CCBER manages more than 340 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 relative high level of biodiversity. CCBER’s project sites and management areas serve to protect and strengthen the region’s ecology and ecosystems through habitat conservation, upland restoration, wetland creation and enhancement, and the implementation of sustainable stormwater management solutions. Through careful integration with local watersheds and surrounding natural areas, CCBER's management areas provide an important corridor and refuge for wildlife, and ensure the longterm preservation of the region's natural resources.
