Cachuma Lake Nature Center Holds Fundraiser Yard Sale; Volunteers Needed for Post-Solstice Float Disassembly

• This Saturday, July 2, the Cachuma Lake Nature Center will host There Are Treasures Everywhere—a giant yard sale that will help raise funds for the Nature Center’s educational programs and community activities, as well as facility maintenance and more. Household goods, books, camping gear, sports equipment, toys, tools, furniture, and more will be up for grabs. The sale runs from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Nature Center (Hwy. 154, Santa Ynez Valley). Prior to the event, the Nature Center is also seeking item donations and volunteers. Call 968-6317 for more info.

• After each year’s summer Solstice Parade in S.B., the floats must be taken apart and disassembled to be used in future parades. From now until Saturday, July 2, volunteers are needed to help dismantle the parade floats at the Solstice Workshop (631Garden St.). Volunteers will also get an inside look at the inner working of the floats and the parade, and help reduce, reuse, and recycle in the spirit of art. For more info or to sign up to volunteer, call 965-5535 or 965-3396, or email
