April Walking Wednesday – Santa Barbara’s Waterfront: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow with Dave Davis @ Cabrillo & Bath Street, beach-side walkway at Sea Landing entryway
Apr 24 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

“Santa Barbara’s Waterfront: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow” with Dave Davis, former City of S.B. Community Development Director, current Water Commission chair and SB MTD Board Chair.

We’ll stroll west to east along Cabrillo Boulevard from the Harbor to Chase Palm Park.  We’ll be chatting about the major changes that have occurred historically to our shoreline and discuss the significant challenges that sea level rise due to climate change will mean for our future.

Meet on the West Beach-side walkway at the intersection of Cabrillo Blvd. & Bath Street, in front of the Sea Landing entrance way.

The one-way walk will be a little over 1 mile long.  Parking is available on-street in the West Beach neighborhood on and off Cabrillo, and in the Harbor parking lot near our starting point, and in the City lots at Garden Street and Cabrillo Boulevard near our ending point.
