nursery plants happy.
The volunteers who helped on these trips were all associated with local conservation groups or were employees or members of the local REI stores. Participating groups includes Santa Barbara Audubon Society, Ventura Surfrider Foundation and the Santa Barbara Zoo.
Most of the trips were led by Kelle Green, the CIR nursery manager and all around NPS volunteer. The groups worked hard, and also had an opportunity to take a short walk on the island following the restoration work. CIR thanks all the volunteers and REI for making these trips possible!
