Time Travelers: Private Vintage Domecar Botanical Day Trip
Saturday, September 29, 10:00am – 5:00pm
Saturday, November 10, 10:00am – 5:00pm

Join SBBG’s Steve Junak for a rare glimpse of some of the last original native coastal landscapes in southern California. The trip begins at the Santa Barbara train depot where you will ride in style aboard a beautifully restored Vista Dome Lounge-Dining Car (built in 1956) for a narrated scenic adventure along a beautiful coastline and through several historic ranchos ( which cannot be seen from Highway 101). We will travel through Gaviota, the Hollister Ranch, the Cojo Ranch (including Point Conception), Vandenberg Air Force Base (including the Sudden Ranch), and the Guadalupe/Oceano Dunes region. Learn about the area’s rich human and natural history before stopping in San Luis Obispo. We will have a catered buffet lunch onboard (including beer, wine, and soft drinks), and change levels and sides for a new and different view on the way back home.
Reservations are limited and must be made by September 7th for the September trip / October 20th for the November trip. Over 21 only.
Trip will go rain or shine.

Fee: Members: $140 / non-members $165
