Nature Awareness and Eco-Adventure Education Series!

Free for everyone! | Outdoor Recreation in Bear Country

Friday | 12 –12:45 pm | Oct 23 

Hosted by Kirsten Cook

Learn natural history and eco-friendly ethics!

UCSB Adventure Programs is very proud to offer a place-based Zoom-workshop series by our own staff naturalist, Kirsten Cook, designed to promote nature awareness, develop healthy outdoor ethics and increase knowledge about local ecosystems within our community.

Outdoor Recreation in Bear Country-- The purpose of this workshop is to help people be more aware of bears and how to interact with them in a way that does not end up harming themselves or the bears. We will discuss Leave No Trace in bear country, personal safety and risk management, and more!

Come join us for discussions and activities on a host of fascinating topics including plant and animal identification with risk awareness, local indigenous ethnobotany and history, ocean and seaside biota and ecosystems, fire ecology, common natural hazards, Leave No Trace principles (invasive species, respecting Wildlife, outdoor ethics,) sustainable foraging, local geology and geography, as well as natural history on a variety of Adventure Programs destinations regularly offered throughout the year such as the Channel Islands, Los Padres National Forest, Joshua Tree, Yosemite and the Colorado River! With so much more to learn about and explore!

These will be weekly, 30-45 minute interactive Zoom-call workshops, presented by our Adventure Programs staff.

Join us each week for another exciting topic on our place based nature series!
