Learn how UC Santa Barbara, alongside a community of visionary environmentalists,  restored a former Goleta golf course back into a wetland.  The documentary Bringing Back Our Wetland, featured at this year’s Santa Barbara International Film Festival, captures a decade-long project led by visionary environmentalists to restore the upper Devereux Slough in Goleta to its natural state. Referred to as the North Campus Open Space Project (NCOS), this restored wetland is a dynamic community asset. It serves as a real-world demonstration of how nature-based solutions can help our community adapt to climate change. Come hear the inspiring story of how this restoration project came to be and you can be a part of restoring our earth!
