Trail Stewards Launch Meetup Web Site

Four Santa Barbara trail organizations have banded together to create a “Meetup” Web site through which visitors can chat about the outdoors and organize volunteer projects like beach cleanup and habitat restoration initiatives.

“Santa Barbarans love to help take care of our local environment,” said Ray Ford, director of Santa Barbara Trails Council and an Indy contributor. “We want to make it easy to know when events are happening and for event leaders to coordinate projects.” The other organizations involved in the site are Santa Barbara Mountain Bike Trail Volunteers, Los Padres Forest Association, and the Santa Barbara County Outdoor Foundation.
