Cachuma Lake

Every Saturday, Santa Barbarans hoping to get out of town for the day are in luck: take a day trip Cachuma Lake (Hwy. 154, Santa Ynez Valley) to participate in a wide range of family-friendly and age-specific programs that will help your whole crew learn about a complex ecosystem while having fun and experiencing nature in the process.

• Adults can set sail on the Cachuma Lake Eagle Cruise, a naturalist-guided tour that focuses on local and migratory wildlife, flora, cultural history, and geology.

• While the parents are at play, kids can join in on the Junior Ranger Program, which focuses on teaching youngsters about local wildlife and how to care for the natural environment.

The Eagle Cruise is from 2-4 p.m.; tickets are $7-$15. The Junior Ranger program starts at 12:30 p.m.; tickets are $2 per child. Call 688-4515 for more information.
