Two grants, totaling more than $1.5 million, were awarded to the Santa Barbara County Land Trust last week for the recovery of the endangered steelhead trout and other native species. One $903,000 grant will be used to improve the native wetlands in the western part of the Goleta Slough, including removing obstacles from fish migration paths. The second grant, provided by the California Coastal Conservancy, earmarks $650,000 to help ease the passage of native steelhead trout traveling through the Arroyo Hondo Creek, which runs under Highway 101.
