“I just heard about this on the radio and came to check it out,” said Garrett Briggs (above left), who, along with his friend Miguel Martinez, tested out the Bird Refuge Stretch Station at the Andrée Clark Bird Refuge last Friday. Madeleine White (below) also stopped to warm up her muscles before a run down the bike path. The Stretch Station is the first of its kind in the city of Santa Barbara and has three different pieces of equipment designed to gently stretch different parts of the body. It’s now open for use during the park’s usual hours, sunrise to 10 p.m.
