Become a certified California Naturalist at SBBG!

The Garden teams with Sedgwick Reserve to present this University of California Cooperative Extension program intended to foster a committed corps of volunteer naturalists and citizen scientists trained and ready to take an active role in local natural resource conservation, education, and restoration. Classes are led by local experts in each topic. The program focuses on the Santa Barbara region, and will provide the core curriculum to become a SBBG or Sedgwick docent, with additional training.
